Head to Wigton to see the Solway Coast
Around 12 miles south-west of Carlisle, Wigton is a small market town in Cumbria which lies blissfully just outside of the Lake District. It sits at the centre of the Solway Plain and is an ideal place from which to explore the Solway Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty home to stunning coastline, rocky cliffs and much more.
Family fun in Carlisle

Immerse yourself in the Lake District
