Private charters

Whether it's a birthday party, anniversary celebration, social club outing or corporate event, Gondola is a spectacular space to entertain guests.

On your private charter, your guests can enjoy the sumptuous comfort of Gondola's two Victorian saloons or can step out on to the beautiful wooden decks, take in the fresh lake air and marvel at the magnificent steam engine as it powers the boat across Coniston Water.

Imagine a beautiful summer's evening, gliding across Consiton Water with the chink of glasses and the sound of laughter filling the air at a party that will live long in the memories of your guests.
