Windermere Jetty

Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stories opened in March 2019.

Windermere Jetty is a spectacular new museum on the shores of Windermere that showcases the sights, smells and sounds of life on the lake.

Steam launches, sailing yachts, motor boats and record-breaking speed boats are on display at the Museum or on the water, while our live conservation workshop is open every day – where you can see our collection of historic boats as they are painstakingly restored.

Hear tales of workers and boat owners, their lives and adventures, and discover the fascinating developments in design and technology that drove boat-building in the Lake District.

Everything at Windermere Jetty links back to the lake.

Our lakeside café is the place to go for fine food and drink.

With incredible views stretching out over Windermere, our café serves the best local produce, made in Cumbria, inspired by the Lake District.

We also have Sunset Supper – Pizza and Prosecco evenings each Friday and Saturday night throughout summer 2019.
