Cumbria hits the right notes for keen musician Chris

“Barrow is a very sociable place compared to London and Manchester, and I love the honesty and warmth of Barrovians. It’s not unusual to have a good laugh with a stranger here."

Barrow is well connected to both the road and rail network. The A590 connects Barrow with the M6 motorway at junction 36 - a journey of approximately 45 minutes.

The town is served by a train station with services to Preston and Manchester Airport. The train journey from Barrow to London Euston involves just one change at either Lancaster or Preston.

Homes in the Barrow area are often much more affordable than other parts of the UK. Whether it's detached family homes off the tree-lined Abbey Road, or executive apartments close to some of the major employers.

There are no commuter delays compared to the major cities, and many people choose to walk or cycle to work.
