Interactive map of Cumbria: explore and research the Cumbria coastline - looking at beaches, things to do, places to stay, eat and visit.
Cumbria lies in North West England and is famous for the Lake District and its areas of outstanding natural beauty.
This is the place that inspires poets and painters, housewives and husbands. It's mountainous, covered in lakes and often rainy but travellers flock there in their thousands to immerse themselves in the beauty of the area and explore the valleys and villages. The Lake District encompasses the Eden Valley, North Pennines, part of the Yorkshire Dales and the Furness Peninsula.
This is the largest national park in the United Kingdom and it's just waiting for you to visit. The deepest lake is Wastwater and the longest, Windermere! Stone circles are prolific and Hadrian's Wall shows just how bad relations used to be between the Scots and the British! The beaches are endless and either on the edge of beautiful lakes or overlooking the ocean.
