Add Ravenglass to your Itinerary

An ancient coastal village located within the Lake District National Park and nestled on the estuaries of three rivers; the Esk, the Irt and the Mite, Ravenglass was recognised as far back as Roman times as an important natural harbour.

The Roman fort of Glannoventa was located here to guard this harbour and the remains of its bath house are among the tallest Roman structures surviving in northern Britain: the walls stand almost 4 metres (13 feet) high.

Ravenglass continued to develop as a fishing and harbour village and the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway opened in 1875 to ferry iron ore from workings near Boot to the coast at Ravenglass. Steam trains still run on the narrow gauge line taking visitors from Ravenglass to the foot of England’s highest mountains, the Scafell Range (3,209ft).

Scenic surrounding and proximity to the Scafell range make it a great destination for walking; coastal strolls and iconic Lake District peaks are all within reach. Steam trains, the haunted Muncaster Castle, and the World Owl Centre are just some attractions to keep families amused and a packed programme of events offers year round entertainment.
