Why Cumbria is the ideal location to do business, live, visit and invest

Cumbria is the most beautiful and unique county in England; there is no better place to live, work, visit and invest.

Home to The Lake District, flanked by the Pennines and mile-upon-mile of stunning coastline, nowhere else in England boasts such a rich variety of inspirational and exhilarating landscapes.

Cumbria possesses the brains to match its outstanding natural beauty and has proudly positioned itself as a world-leader in the maritime, specialist manufacturing and nuclear industries, while making significant strides into new sectors, in particular renewable energy.

Connected by road (M6), rail (the West Coast Mainline and Cumbria Coast Line) and air (Carlisle Airport), England's second largest county is in a perfect location to reach national and international markets. This, along with a wide range of rural and urban opportunities and an unrivalled quality of life, combine to create the perfect place to mix business and pleasure.
