There are plenty of cycle paths stretching along the coast if you like to explore on 2 wheels.
Those interested in maritime history should head to the harbour towns of Maryport and Whitehaven, or spend a day in the border city of Carlisle where you can learn all about the area's Roman heritage at the fantastic Tullie House Museum or even visit nearby Hadrian's Wall. For those who'd prefer to indulge in a bit of retail therapy, head to the Georgian market town of Cockermouth with its numerous independent shops, 3 supermarkets and the National Trust-owned ancestral home of William Wordsworth, or bustling Keswick for a great selection of outdoor and independent shops. If you are more adventurous, climb some of the best peaks in The Lake District.
