This year there will be TWO CRUISES provided by Windermere Lake Cruises.
The MORNING CRUISE departs from Waterhead Pier, Ambleside at 11.00am prompt to search for Father Christmas in the morning mists on the lake. Boarding will start from 10.30am for holders of the special tickets. If we are really lucky we may even find some of Santa's helpers!
The AFTERNOON CRUISE departs from Waterhead Pier at 2pm prompt to search for Father Christmas in the afternoon mists on the lake. Boarding will start from 1.30pm for holders of the special tickets. If we are really lucky we even find some of Santa's helpers!
There will be entertainment on the boats for the children, with the Snow Queen and attendants to make the journey pass quickly and happily. When the steamer finds him, Father Christmas will come aboard to meet the children. The wonder of Christmas will entrance all the young children as Father Christmas gives them each a small present on the journey back to Waterhead.
After the afternoon cruise Father Christmas will wander along the promenade at Waterhead switching on the lights before boarding his sleigh which will take him to Ambleside to meet up with the lantern bearers.
