Hotels in Whitehaven

Set in a Georgian town on the west coast of Cumbria, Whitehaven hotels are a great base for exploring this historical harbour area and making day trips to the Lake District. Whitehaven's hotels range from modern chains such as Premier Inn, through to unique and well-equipped historial buildings such as the Georgian House Hotel, and Hunday Manor.

History

The history of Whitehaven can be traced to the 10th century, when Irish-Norse Vikings settled in the area. Whitehaven then developed under the ownership of The Priory of St Bees until the Dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539. It wasn't until the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th centuries that Whitehaven grew into a substantial town, both as an important coal-mining area and as a commercial port.

The harbour is a good place to get a feel for Whitehaven's history. The Old Quay was built by Sir Christopher Lowther in 1634 and is today one of the only surviving coal wharves in the country. For a more comprehensive overview of Whitehaven's history head to The Beacon, a museum dedicated to detailing the development of the Copeland region. A good place to visit for an hour or two, the museum contains a fascinating variety of artefacts and documents, as well as a range of hands-on exhibitions. Also connected to Whitehaven's maritime past is The Rum Story, a walk-through museum that focuses on the town's association with the UK rum trade.

The best place to learn about Whitehaven's coal-mining history is the Haig Colliery Mining Museum, based in the former Haig Pit, which closed in 1986. The mining machinery used in the pit has been restored and is on display here. Along the coast you'll also find the restored Saltom Pit, which dates from the 18th century. Another remnant from the area's past is the St Nicholas' Church Clock Tower, containing an intricate mechanical clock that is over 150 years old.

The Lake District

Head east from Whitehaven and you'll soon reach the vast area of natural beauty that is The Lake District National Park. One of the most popular ways to reach the Lake District is to follow the 10-mile cycling path that runs from Whitehaven to Ennerdale. The path passes through Cleator Moor, Kirkland and runs beside Ennerdale Lake. From the lake you're only a short distance from Ennerdale Forest, the Pillar Mountain and Buttermere. As well as walking and cycling, the Lake District is a fantastic location for outdoor sports ranging from horse riding to kayaking on one of the many lakes.
