Cockermouth Certificated Locations

Situated on the edge of the Lake District, Cockermouth in Cumbria is a designated Gem town due to its array of historic buildings and preserved street plan.

The town is best known as the birthplace of poet William Wordsworth, and the Georgian Home where he was born is now a National Trust property. Other highlights include Cockermouth Castle, Jennings Brewery, the Banks Museum and the Memorial Gardens.

For a spot of shopping, you'll find several small independent retailers on Main Street, Market Place and Station Street. Browse the antiques and gift shops for unique souvenirs, and if you start to feel peckish, there's a great selection of pubs and restaurants to choose from too.
