What does our region have to offer?

Picture life in Cumbria: rolling hills, country pubs with roaring fires, wet dogs and muddy wellies. An accurate image for some, but there’s so much more!

You’ll have seen numerous idyllic images of the Lake District - a UNESCO World Heritage Site no less - you may have even visited yourself, but do you know what is on offer in the rest of the region?

Cumbria is a wonderful mixture of picturesque villages, bustling market towns and dynamic city living.

Whether you want to immerse yourself in everything the city of Carlisle has to offer or enjoy the calmer existence of a close-knit village community, there’s something for everyone.
