Windermere Lake Cruises is again officially one of England’s most popular ‘paid for’ visitor attractions, based on passenger numbers.

The latest annual visitor attractions survey collated by VisitEngland reveals there were 1,611,491 passenger journeys on the company’s 16-strong fleet of ‘steamers’, modern launches and wooden launches during 2017.


The results move the company slightly further up the national list when compared to 2016 - ranking it in fourth position, again ahead of iconic attractions such as Stonehenge, St Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey.
