Your adventure begins by canoe, a peaceful paddle across this short stretch of Derwent Water to the intriguing little island. Discover the reality of life on the island past and present, indoors and out. Enjoy the gardens, grounds and amazing views. Under the expert eyes of our qualified canoe instructors, pick up a paddle and climb aboard a very stable rafted canoe. On reaching the island enjoy a 45 minute guided tour of Pocklington's Georgian house and then explore the gardens and the rest of the island at your leisure. First canoes leave the foreshore at 10.15am and then at 30 minute intervals until 2.30pm, this final tour returning to the foreshore at 5pm. Your visit will last approximately 2½ hours.
