Cumbria Shopping: 3 reviews and 2 photos

  Main shopping street
by VickiJ

If you are visiting West Cumbria and want to do some shopping Carlisle is probably your best bet. It has all the high street stores such as Debenhams, Next, House of Fraser. It is a short distance from Keswick and about an hours drive from Whitehaven. The main shopping area is pedestrainised with car parks within easy walking distance which is great as you don't have to cart your bags round with you all day!
There are plenty of resturants and bars for those who have had enough of shopping too.
You could even make a night of it as there are plenty of places to stop and the nightlife is meant to be lively - (i haven't been for a nightout yet, but going to the Races in July so will let you know then!)
