Two of Cumbria’s transport providers have announced the return of key services.

Windermere Lake Cruises and Stagecoach have both announced the resumption of key services in the Lakes from Monday.

Windermere Lake Cruises is preparing to reintroduce several of its popular cruise routes linking Lakeside, Bowness and Ambleside, having only been operating ‘circular’ cruises since resuming cruises on July 4.

Meanwhile, Stagecoach says it will be re-starting its usual summer timetable at the same time, so boat passengers now have a wider range of sustainable transport options in the central Lake District.

Jennifer Cormack, sales and marketing director at Windermere Lake Cruises, said: “We said earlier this month that we’d be looking for more normality to resume when the time was right, which we believe is now."
