In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practice social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.
Face coverings are compulsory when using public transport in England and Scotland. In Wales you must wear a 3 layer face covering on public transport and put it on before travelling unless you are exempt. It is also now compulsory to wear face coverings when using indoor public transport hubs in England only.
The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, use contactless payment and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page
Our very popular open top buses allow you to leave the car behind and let us be your driver for the day. With day tickets from £8.50, see the Lake District in a different way. A fun, refreshing way to see the Lakes, our 599 open top buses cover the Central Lakes.
Bowness - Windermere - Ambleside - Grasmere on the 599
The Lakesider 599 bus runs every 20 minutes from Bowness to Grasmere, connecting with mainline station, Windermere. We provide free WiFi, USB charging points, spaces for buggies and bikes and audio commentary, so you get even more from your trip.
The 508 bus runs every hour from Penrith to Windermere, with open toppers every two hours. This service connects with Ullswater so why not combine a bus journey with a boat ride with a bus & boat ticket?
Our 78 service runs between Keswick and Seatoller. This service connects with Derwent Water so why not combine a bus journey with a boat ride with our great value bus & boat tickets?
Park up and enjoy the most wonderful time of the year from the best seat in the Lakes.
