The Cumbria Way

The Cumbria Way is a classic walk across the Lake District from South to North. On your walk from Ulverston to Carlisle, through 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 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.
