West Lakes & Coast

The panoramic Cumbrian coast in the North of England is an area of vast sweeping sandy bays edged by stunning countryside and littered with picture postcard seaside towns. Walkers can marvel at the breathtaking scenery as they meander down one of the many trails which run around the coast.

The Cumbrian coast is home to some of Englands most ancient and historic towns dating back to medieval times.

Historically this was a heavily industrialised area with mining, shipbuilding and chemical manufacturing, all of which are now gone. Local heritage centres and museums remain however, keeping the memory of its past alive and offering places of interest for the many visitors to the region.
