Cumbria's finest school trip destinations

With a resident population of just under 500,000 people, the large English county of Cumbria, in the North West of the country, is one of the most sparsely populated. Much of the county is classed as rural, with lots of upland, moorland and mountainous areas. Cumbria contains several conservation areas including the Lake District National Park, the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and parts of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With such stunning natural landscapes and a long coastline, it is no wonder the area boasts so many outdoor education centres, offering everything from geographical field studies to adrenaline sports and outdoor residential activities. Attracting school groups from the major northern cities of Newcastle, Middlesbrough, Leeds, Manchester and Liverpool, the Cumbria is a fantastic place to take your class.

On the page below we highlight some of the best Cumbrian venues for learning outside the classroom. Click on any of the trips to read more about any that take your fancy. We add new venues on a regular basis, so feel free to bookmark the page for future reference.
