If you don’t fancy the 8 mile walk around Derwentwater, then you can still go for a 50 minute cruise to explore the whole lake.
You can take in the lake’s scenic beauty by boarding one of the launches from the jetty, just 10 minutes’ walk from Keswick town centre.
The charming motor launches, operated by Keswick Launch Company, cruise around the lake stopping at 7 lakeside jetties where you can hop off or simply stay on the boat for the whole 50 minute boat ride.
