Located on the Solway coast, on the estuary of the River Derwent, and tucked to the west of the Lake District National Park, Workington has re-invented its industrial past. It's now the main shopping centre for Cumbria with plenty of local facilities for you to make the most of. A railway station in town means good connections to Barrow-in-Furness to the south and Carlisle to the north. With the Lake District as the backdrop, you'll have no shortage of ideas for days out. Buttermere is just 20 miles inland and towering above it is Scafell Pike. Whether walking or cycling are your thing, a new home here gives you a real head start.
There's plenty to see and do in the Workington area. At the mouth of the River Derwent, Workington itself is an ancient market town and is well-known for its attractive shopping precinct. The town centre boasts an abundance of high street and local independent shops, as well as a town market held every Wednesday and Saturday. Residents can enjoy close proximity to St Bees, a popular seaside area; the harbour town of Maryport, with its maritime museum, aquarium and Wave Arts and Sports Centre; and the beautiful Lake District, which is approximately 20-minutes by car from Workington. Carlisle is also just 34 miles away with its larger shopping centres and city attractions. Workington offers some fantastic sporting facilities, including a golf club, tennis club, two bowling greens, cricket club, professional rugby league team, and football team. Other leisure facilities include the preserved Carnegie Theatre and Arts Centre, with its cafe and varied programme of concerts, plays and gigs.
Families with children will be pleased to know there’s a good range of local schooling, including St Michaels Nursery and Infant School, Victoria Infant and Junior Schools, St Patricks RC Primary School, and Workington Academy.
