The Ticket Office
Soak up the buzz of Bassenthwaite Lake Station in our carefully restored station buildings. The seating in our ticket office area is kept for walk-ins and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. A cheerful collection of colourful, train-themed jigsaw puzzles adorn the walls, and keep an eye out for some unique features including a lovingly preserved panel of original British Rail green paintwork!
At particularly busy times there may be a short wait for food. Hot and cold refreshments and sweet treats are available at all times so you can always quell those cake and ice cream cravings after a day on the fells!
