Book your cruise on Steam Yacht Gondola

Take a boat trip on Coniston Water with the whole family aboard a steam powered yacht. From daily sailings to special occasion celebrations, the Steam Yacht Gondola is on the water seven days a week – here’s how to book your tickets.

You can book your cruise online up to 24 hours in advance of your sailing time. Or if you’d like to sail on the day, just turn up at any one of our jetties and pay for your ticket once you’re on board. We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before the departure time. National Trust members receive a 10% discount on scheduled cruises – select the National Trust members’ ticket after choosing your sailing date, and please show your membership card when boarding.
