Cumbrian Coast Line

Looking for another way to explore beautiful Cumbria? Fed up of staring through the windscreen at traffic-clogged Lake District roads? Want more time to soak up the views, the peace, the tranquillity?

Try the train for so many reasons – to explore hidden places and peaceful spaces; to gaze at seascapes that stretch the horizon; to watch rolling fields and steep slopes and crags; to walk in the footsteps of history; to dip your toes in the waves at the start of Wainwright’s longest walk or maybe just to sit back and relax at the slow unfolding of rivers, fells and lonely estuaries.

At Maryport lies the Roman settlement once known as of Alauna and the fascinating Senhouse Roman Museum… and who doesn’t enjoy a steam railway trip on La’ll Ratty at Ravenglass?   The sensational new Millom Heritage & Arts Centre opened after major rebrand and refurbishment.

Visit soon – you won’t regret it!
