Cumbria is a land of beauty and variety from its busy cities and historic market towns to its stone and slate villages each possessing their own character. Cumbria's landscape is diverse; wild fells and high passes with endless views stir the imagination.

Quiet pastoral countryside and valleys enchant; rivers twist and tumble. Glacial lakes reflect cloud-topped mountains and man-made drystone walls march across the dales. Woodlands and coastal scenery add to the mix.

The legacy of the past is here in prehistoric and Roman remains - stone circles & burial cairns dot the land and old Roman roads and forts still command attention. Historic places of worship and ruined castles speak of Norman times. Country houses and gardens delight the visitor.

Walkers call this county 'paradise'; everywhere the grandeur of the scenery.
