HALF-price tickets are now available for residents to cruise Windermere's autumn scenery.

The Walker’s Ticket – and all other scheduled cruise tickets – are now half price to people living in Cumbria and north Lancashire thanks to the Local Residents’ Discount Card.

Jennifer Cormack, Sales and Marketing Director at Windermere Lake Cruises, says; “Many of our boat masters, who see Windermere throughout the year, say Autumn is one of the most beautiful times – and I agree with them. I think the array of colours on display at this time of the year is just spectacular.

“The Local Residents’ Discount Card means that from October 1 people with an LA or CA postcode can buy cruise tickets with a 50 per cent discount so this is a great time to get out and enjoy a cruise and to see our beautiful autumnal landscapes.”

Local Residents’ Discount Cards are free to anyone living in CA or LA postcode areas.

The 50 per cent discount on all scheduled Windermere Lake Cruises trips runs until April 30 next year. The Walker’s Ticket is available until the end of October.

Visitors to the Lakeland Motor Museum can also benefit from reduced entry fees.
