What's going on

inside or outside, it's your choice

This is a great place to explore for yourself.

Relax and chill out with a drink, shop a little, visit our historic buildings or explore the green spaces - or do them all! You'll be well rewarded whatever you choose.


Easily accessed without the car and not as remote or wild as some parts of the Lake District, the lower hills here and shorter routes can be enjoyed by the whole family.
