Cumbria

Visit Cumbria for an experience like no other in England. The market towns of Kendal, Keswick and Cockermouth offer a unique shopping experience for the urban dweller, and the busy lakes of Windermere and Ullswater provide ample opportunity for boating or watersports. The east’s Eden Valley is one of the region’s best-kept secrets, and the west’s dramatic scenery of Buttermere and Wastwater well-worth the extra-mileage. Keep an eye out for England’s last golden eagle and don’t forget to stock up on Kendal Mintcake, still made in the town that bears its name. Visit Cumbria today and take in the county’s splendour for yourself.
