What's on

Whether you're a resident or visitor, there's lots of things to do and see across Cumberland.

Welcome to Cumberland. If you’re not familiar with the name, we’re the north and west bit of the Lake District – and we think you’ll find we’re a little bit special. 

Yes, we have lakes and iconic mountains, and all the amazing views the words ‘The Lake District’ conjure up, but visit Cumberland and you’ll find even more than that.

Here, you’ll discover two UNESCO World Heritage sites – the world-famous Lake District National Park and the amazingly historic Hadrian’s Wall. 

Beyond both of those, there is the chance to discover the hidden charms of the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with beaches, dunes and wetlands galore.

There are so many other things to do as well. You could swing through the mountains and the trees, cycle and walk on the fells and the coast, or paddle, sail or row on our lakes and rivers.

You could discover history in our unique museums, find some culture in our theatres, admire some outstanding architecture or enjoy some retail therapy in lovely independent shops – or you could just sit and admire one of those outstanding views.

If you want to get a bit more hands-on, you could always check out one of the many adult learning arts and crafts courses.

There is also the opportunity to take adult learning courses in Allerdale, take adult learning courses in Copeland and take adult learning courses in Carlisle. There is also a full list of adult learning courses, covering everything from functional maths to building confidence.
