Cockermouth Shopping & Sightseeing Experience

Cockermouth Shopping & Sights.

Sitting on the northern edge of the English Lake District, Cockermouth is an ancient market town, boasting a wealth of cumbrian culture and experiences. With lovely walks and award-winning attractions on its doorstep, Cockermouth forms the perfect shopping and sight-seeing base for your break in The Lakes, without the constant hustle and bustle of tourists that are found in the neighbouring towns of Keswick and Windermere.

Unlike your typical high street, the unique sense of Cumbrian heritage is immediately felt by the town’s thriving abundance of independently owned shops and boutiques- making quirky gifts and sentimental keepsakes to remember your Lake District adventure a sure find. The majority of Cockermouth businesses are family run, and some like J.B Banks Ironmongers, which offers a traditional hardware shop and museum, have been in business since the early 19th Century. Later additions have been established by local entrepreneurs who have attracted a loyal and discerning customer base for their products and services, which range from traditional toys, fashion, art-work and crafts.

However, even if shopping isn’t the focal point of your break in The Lakes, with Cockermouth being 1 of only 51 gem towns recommended for preservation in Britain as part of our national heritage, you can be assured that there are plenty of sights to see. Enjoy strolling around the town’s historic streets and Marketplace with its original market bell or explore the riverside paths along The River Derwent, leading to stunning views of Cockermouth Castle- either way, you won’t be disappointed.


Taking into account the abundance of sights and attractions that we’re sure you’ll be mentally noting down to visit, the Trout Hotel have produced the ultimate Cockermouth Shopping & Sightseeing Experience.
