A quiet village and picturesque lake of the same name, Coniston is a place where time seems to have stood still from Victorian days. Adding to this historical ambiance is the town’s main highlight, the Victorian Steam Yacht Gondola that ferried wealthy railway tourists from 1859 – 1936. Rebuilt by the National Trust, it once again sails across Coniston Water between April and October (various cruise options available), offering luxury saloons and open-air decks in its original style.

Another attraction is the Old Man of Coniston, a 2,634-toot high (803 m) fell which rises dramatically behind the village. Feeling up for a hike? There are a few well-marked walking trails to the summit with fabulous views to reward the effort.
