Visit Cumbria


Home to the majestic Lake District, a visit to Cumbria guarantees the chance to explore one of the most beautiful regions and also one of the most sparsely populated counties in the UK. Cumbria consists of six districts (Allerdale, Barrow-in-Furness, Carlisle, Copeland, Eden and South Lakeland). Cumbria is a vastly rural county, based in the north west of England. Cumbria is home to the Eden Valley, the North Pennines, the Furness Peninsula, and a small part of the Yorkshire Dales.

World famous for its beautiful lakes and mountainous surroundings, the Lake District today is a playground for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts looking to explore the great outdoors. More than 15 million people visit the National Park each year ( and it continues to be a popular staycation destination in the UK.

With lakes, mountains, valleys, villages, towns and coastline, there is plenty to see and do. Home to traditional pubs and inns, market towns such as Kendal, Ambleside and Keswick are perfect bases for exploring the Lake District.
