Explore the Area

Workington is an ancient market and industrial town with a number of historical churches and buildings to explore, including Our Lady and St Michael’s Church, the Helena Thompson Museum and Workington Hall. The latter is built around one of approximately 90 Pele Towers (built during the reign of Edward I to historically protect England against the Scots). This particular tower gave shelter to Mary Queen of Scots on her last flight from Scotland before her imprisonment and execution.

You’ll be well placed for a visit to the Lake District, as well as popular tourist towns including Keswick and Whitehaven. Being placed on the M6 gives you ready access to the North West, allowing you to easily visit Carlisle, Lancaster, Preston, Manchester and Liverpool.
