The small town of Ravenglass in the Lake District National Park has become one of only a handful of locations around the world to receive double World Heritage Site status, thanks to its location in the National Park and the fact that it is located at the start of Hadrian’s Wall. If you are planning a trip to the picturesque village, here are 10 of the best things to do in the area.
Good weather cannot be guaranteed in the Lake District, but, if you visit on a dismal day, you can still enjoy the scenery by going for a drive in the countryside. The green valley of Eskdale is easily explored via car from Ravenglass, although its roads are not for the faint of heart. Take the hairpin road down Hardknott Pass to admire the dramatic views from this notoriously challenging drive.
