Cumbria Way

Date: TBA

Price: TBA

The Cumbria Way is a classic 72 mile walk across the Lake District from South to North. On your walk from Ulverston to Carlisle, though the natural beauty of the Lake District, you will follow in the footsteps of the romantic poets Wordsworth, Coleridge and Southley and discover how being immersed in the inspiring scenery of the Lake District inspired them to create some of the country’s best known verse.

The Cumbria Way begins in the market town of Ulverston, with its cobbled streets and festival atmosphere and takes you north via Coniston, Great Langdale, Rosthwaite, Derwent Water, Keswick and Caldbeck to Carlisle.

A predominantly low level walk, but with some significant climbs, the Cumbria Way is a fine way to explore the best of the English Lake District in a week of inn to inn walking.

Highlights

  • Walking the Cumbria Way from South to North across the English Lake District
  • Picture perfect Lakeland views of Tarn Howes and the Coniston fells.
  • The breathtaking, rugged beauty of the Lake District.
  • The famous Cumbrian hospitality.
  • The bustle of the Lakeland towns and galleries.
