Take the Wasdale Shuttlebus and make your visit to Wasdale easier and better for the climate, the community and the landscape. Parking in the valley is limited, but at peak times you can park in the pop-up car park in Nether Wasdale and catch the shuttlebus to Wasdale Head. Wasdale Head is the starting point for walks to Sca Fell, Scafell Pike, Great Gable and other fells as well as Wastwater.
The bus is free thanks to grant funding, but we appreciate donations on-board to put back into conservation projects in the valley.
This year the first and last journeys of the day to will link up with Ravenglass train station, where there's lots of parking and you can travel along the scenic Cumbria Coast railway line. Check the train times before you travel on National Rail.
Our guide to this dramatic valley has easy flat walking routes and hikes up some of the Lake District's highest fells. Where to hire bikes, where to camp and where to stay in Wasdale, Eskdale and Ravenglass.
The bus will run on Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays during May half term and July, August and the start of September.
The bus will pick up anywhere on the route where it is safe to do so. Well behaved dogs are allowed, just not on the seats!
