The Ullswater 'Steamers' has been sailing on England's very own Lake Lucerne since 1859. In Arthurian legend, Ullswater is referred to as teh 'Dark Lake' and it was believed that monsters lived beneath.

 

Its unique serpentine shape was sculpted by three separate glaciers in the last Ice Age, creating its unique 'Z' shape where Helvellyn crowns its head at the southern reach.
