Hotels in Barrow In Furness
Known simply as Barrow to the locals, the seaport of Barrow-in-Furness is one of the hidden gems of Cumbria, with stunning views of the Lake District mountains as well as plenty to see and do in the town itself. Thanks to the town's combination of Victorian architecture and broad range of activities, Barrow-in-Furness hotels are an attractive alternative for those wishing to avoid the crowded tourist hotspots of the Lake District.
Barrow's central importance during the Industrial Revolution is in evidence throughout the town, from the impressive, imposing Town Hall to the Furness Railway line which was built to transport minerals. So important was Barrow, in fact, that by 1876 it was home to not only the largest steelworks in Britain, but the world.
With so much Victoriana to indulge in, it's easy to forget that the legacy of the area extends back much further. Furness Abbey is perhaps the clearest example of this. The ruins of this 12th-century monastery are situated just north of the town and are well worth your time, if you get the chance, to have a stroll around. Similarly, Piel Castle lies a bit further afield on Piel Island and was built in the 14th century to protect the harbour from raids. You can catch a ferry across to the island to get a closer view of this fascinating local attraction.
Family friendly fun
The kids will be entertained too, thanks to Barrow's excellent range of family activities. With a zoo, laser tag, bowling, go karting and more, you'll be spoilt for choice during your visit. Earnse Bay, meanwhile, is the area's most popular beach and is well served by local bus links.
Wide range of accommodation
Barrow offers some superb choices for accommodation at all levels, with high-level luxury and limited budget requirements catered for. The magnificent Abbey House Hotel, for example, boasts stunning views and sublime food, while the Duke of Edinburgh Hotel in the town looks absolutely resplendent when lit up at night. More budget-conscious visitors to the area will be pleased to know that several alternatives are also available, including camping, B&Bs, cottages and even camper van hire.
