In the Area - Exploring Kirkby Lonsdale

Few places in the UK rival Kirkby Lonsdale for access to the great outdoors. The town’s position on the edge of the Lakes and Dales means you can be up a local fell for sunrise or in the far reaches of the Lake District for lunch. Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire are all easily accessible.  

Starting locally, walk your way around delights like Ruskin’s View and Devil’s Bridge. Call into nearby villages like Barbon and Casterton. 

The market town of Kendal acts as the gateway to the central Lakes, with the northern and western Lakes within easy driving distance. 

The Dales will also likely be on your list; there are some great short walks from Ingleton and Clapham, and plenty of circular bike rides around Sedbergh, Dentdale and the Lune Valley. Skipton is a popular day trip, the city of Lancaster is about half an hour’s drive while Arnside and Silverdale provide great nature watching opportunities. 

Below are some highlights. Before you head off, pop in to the Visitor Information Centre and Gift Shop on Main Street where our volunteers can supply you with leaflets, maps and ideas.
