Workington’s long history is proudly on show in Curwen Park. Look out for the
picturesque ruin of Curwen Hall. It’s a fine place to
wile away some time on a sunny day. Leaving the park leads you to the
Helena Thompson Museum, a fine looking Georgian, Grade II listed house.
Its interesting collection consists of costume, textiles, antiques and curios.
Workington is the largest town in Allerdale and has a well designed, pedestrianised shopping area in the centre of the town. It features major high street brands and a range of independent shops for a good retail day out.
