Why live in Workington

Workington is a picturesque town on the west coast of Cumbria. It has a wide variety of state and private schools in the areas that cover all levels of education, so it’s a lovely town for families to settle down.

A car is the easiest way to get around Workington, with the A595 and A66 nearby running through the Lake District and north to Carlisle. Trains run to Carlisle and Barrow-in-Furness with infrequent services to Lancaster.

Workington has all the benefits of a coastal town, but if wide open spaces are more your speed, the Lake District is a short drive away. In Workington itself there are museums, kids play centres, theatres, cinemas and plenty of shopping opportunities.

Local area guide

The Town

Workington is a historic market town located at the mouth of the River Derwent on the Solway Coast, and yet so close to the Northern Lake District for a real taste of the best of both worlds - you can spend time at the seaside or for the walkers among us, a short drive takes you to the beautiful, yet challenging, Lakeland Fells.

History

Some parts of Workington date back to Roman times and our fascinating history can be explored by a visit to the Senhouse Roman Museum just a stone’s throw away along the coast in Maryport.

Workington’s industrial heritage was reliant on iron and steel manufacture, and coal mining which have since gone into decline. However, the town is immensely proud of its industrial heritage and there are echoes of this past dotted about this bustling town. There is also a splendid 14-acre town centre park called Vulcan’s Park which has family fun days during the warmer months and a cenotaph honouring our fallen soldiers.

Attractions 

Sitting in the heart of the town centre is Curwen Hall, formerly a grand manor house elevated above the River Derwent with its wooded grounds, previously owned by the Curwen family and now a much visited ruin, Curwen Hall gave refuge to a fleeing Mary Queen of Scots as she escaped from Scotland.

Amenities 

Workington is the main shopping centre for the West Cumbria area with a variety of local independent and major high street retailers, there are lots of eateries, bars, pubs and two busy theatres offering a diverse choice of music and drama.

Events

Workington has an annual tradition every Easter of an “Uppies and Downies” match. This is a medieval version of football but has a distinct similarity to rugby. Depending where you live in Workington, you are either an ‘Uppie’ or a ‘Downie’. The game is played with a small leather ball which has to be hailed (thrown into the air) three times at the opposition’s goal. There is no pitch and the game is pure rough and tumble, it is played over several nights and each team can have around a thousand players.

Surrounding Areas

Workington is steeped in history and there are some fascinating period properties on the edge of the town centre. The local village of Seaton which is one of the largest villages in England, has its own primary schools and local amenities which makes it very popular with families and couples. Ashfield and Stainburn are popular suburbs of Workington due to the handy local primary schools and short walking distance into town. Further east are the villages of Great Clifton, Little Clifton, and Bridgefoot. Heading west takes you to the coastal village of Harrington with its own harbour and seaside, adjacent to here is High Harrington with lots of family friendly residential areas and a little further still lies Distington and the more rural village of Gilgarran.

Transport

Workington is a bustling industrial town with convenient transport links to the Lake District towns and to the City of Carlisle.

Education 

There is plenty of choice for primary schools and two major secondary schools in the town centre, St Joseph’s RC High School, and Workington Academy. As Workington is part of the Energy Coast, we are proud to have the Energy Coast University Technical College in the town specialising in the trades required in the local area.
