This enchanting holiday is based in the port town of Whitehaven. Perhaps discover the mysteries of the rum trade at the eighteenth century Dark Spirit of Whitehaven warehouse where you can experience life in a Georgian town as the story of rum unfolds. We stay at Summergrove Halls Hotel which has a pretty garden and furnished terrace. A thrilling itinerary takes in Muncaster Castle which stands in acres of gardens and features towers and battlements. From here, we head to the Ravenglass & Eskdale Railway for a trip aboard a steam locomotive along the Cumbrian coastline. We also visit Cockermouth & Keswick and enjoy a free day to browse Whitehaven’s market.
