Visit Egremont Cumbria and the surrounding villages and stay in bed and breakfast, hotel or self-catering accommodation provided by BedPosts members.
Egremont has the River Ehen meandering through it and a wide main street lined with trees (and market stalls on Fridays). Egremont is a pretty town, notorious as the home of ugly faces and for the World Gurning Championships held here every September at a country fair which has taken place for donkeys years. The ruins of Egremont Castle, dating from the 12th century, stand in a park on a hilltop overlooking the main street. The castle's best surviving feature is the original gatehouse.
Lowes Court Gallery on Main Street dates from the 16th century. It was restored for the promotion of local arts and crafts. Jewellery made from haematite, the local red iron ore, can be bought at the Florence Mine Heritage Centre. This is the last deep working iron—ore mine in Europe, where you will find out why the miners are known as the Red Men of Cumbria. Mining conditions at the turn of the 20th century have been recreated in the Heritage Centre, and a small museum tells the history of the mine.
