On Ullswater, the second-largest lake in England’s Lake District, visitors can take a cruise aboard a historic steamboat operated by Ullswater ‘Steamers’ (phone +44 17684 82229, www.ullswater-steamers.co.uk)

Operating five boats (the oldest first launched in 1877) all year, Ullswater “steamers” travel about 8 miles across the length of the lake, stopping at four piers along the way. During high season, March 26-Oct. 28, “steamers” depart roughly every 20 minutes. Each is equipped with indoor and outdoor seating, a licensed bar and bathrooms. 

Full-day passes, allowing for unlimited embark/disembark privileges, cost £14.20 (near $19) per person. Pier-to-pier tickets for one-way journeys are also available. Purchase tickets in advance online or at an Ullswater ‘Steamers’ facility at Glenridding, Pooley Bridge or Aira Force pier.
