Coast

The rugged coastline of the Western Lake District is one of its unique assets. Whether you’re heading to the coast for the wildlife and birdwatching, planning a coastal stroll, or coming to sample the freshest fish and seafood, the Western Lake District can offer all kinds of shoreline adventures. It’s also the place to set off on your Coast to Coast (or C2C if you’re cycling) adventures – a true challenge of endurance that takes in some of the most beautiful scenery in the British Isles.
