Great value for ramblers!

There are many advantages of using the bus when visiting the Lakes, especially if you plan to go fell walking.

Stagecoach is your great holiday companion as we have bus routes which incorporate the rugged fells and calming waters of four of the major lakes. The benefit of taking the bus means that you can plan a linear walk without the bother of finding a parking space and even finish your day with a swift pint at a local pub!


With our Group Rambler ticket a group of up to five people can make a single journey** when travelling together for only £17.50. Buy the ticket on the bus.


**single journey must be within either Keswick and Honister Zone, Penrith and Ullswater Zone or Central Lakes Zone
