Travellers and activities

Ravenglass for history lovers

An exploration of the Roman fort at Glannoventa will allow you to see the remains of the bathhouse, one of the tallest and best-preserved Roman structures in northern Britain. Standing almost 4 metres high, the bathhouse (known as Walls Castle) was where the Romans went to wash, so you'll be able to see the remains of rooms with hot, warm and cold baths. Nearby, Muncaster Castle, has the reputation of being one of the most haunted buildings in the country and is a treasure trove of fine art and antiques, as well as one of the favourite historic houses of the Lake District and Cumbria. The castle is believed to stand on Roman remains and has been home to the Pennington family since 1208 or earlier.

Ravenglass for outdoor lovers

The scenic setting of Ravenglass makes it an ideal place for walking. You can climb the iconic peaks of the Lake District and follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers from Ravenglass to Muncaster. This easy circular walking route takes you from the village, past the remains of the Roman bathhouse and up the hill to Muncaster. But if you want something more challenging, Hadrian's High Way takes you 100 miles (160.93 km) through multiple Roman sites and amazing wild landscapes. Alternatively, you can explore the beauty of Ravenglass and Eskdale by mountain biking along the 8-mile Eskdale Trail cycle route. Besides, you can also choose to cycle the route by renting an electric bike at Muncaster Cycles.

2000 years ago, Ravenglass was a Roman naval base and an important part of the defences against the Scots.

Top 7 travel tips in Ravenglass

1. Take a trip on Cumbria's best-loved steam railway

Today, the village of Ravenglass is best known for being the starting point of the Ravenglass and Eskdale (La'al Ratty) Steam Railway. Pass along seven miles of scenic track on a steam journey from Ravenglass to the foot of England's highest mountains, the Scafell Range, and marvel at the views! This narrow-gauge railway is one of Cumbria's best-loved attractions and has a reputation of being one of the most beautiful train journeys in England.

2. Take a scenic drive through the Eskdale Valley

Between Eskdale and the Duddon Valley, take a drive over the Hardknott Pass, the steepest road in Britain; explore the Eskdale Valley; take in the incredible panoramic views along this challenging route and stop at the Roman fort at Hardknott built in the 2nd century AD. With spectacular waterfalls and mountains in the background, the Eskdale Valley is an amazing place to see. The landscape can easily be explored by car from Ravenglass, although this steeply curving road is not for the faint-hearted.

3. Visit Muncaster's gardens in springtime

Referred to as the 'Gateway to Paradise', Muncaster's wild gardens are a tranquil haven even on the busiest of days that you should experience. Visit the gardens in the spring when they are at their best and delight in the riot of colour of native and exotic plants that surrounds the castle. In the gardens, you will also find the Hawk and Owl Centre where you can discover a wide variety of birds, from the largest to the smallest. If you are visiting Ravenglass at this time of year, the 'Gateway to Paradise' is an attraction not to be missed.

4. Experience Muncaster's paranormal activities

Experiencing the haunted Muncaster Castle is quite an interesting thing to do during your trip. Each year the castle offers one or two scientific ghosts watches where you can join a group of paranormal specialists on a nighttime exploration. Spend the night in the Tapestry Room, where apparitions often occur and discover the stories of ghostly residents such as Tom Fool who keeps playing pranks on visitors, and the White Lady who haunts the gardens. During this experience, you will often hear a child crying and a lady singing…

5. Embark on an adventure on England's highest mountain

An adventure on England's highest mountain is sure to be a memorable story to tell when you return home. You'll find a spectacular backdrop with three routes that will take you to the breathtaking summit. Hike across this magnificent 978 metre mountain, take in the views from the top, and bring your camera to capture this wonderful moment of achievement! — We recommend that you only tackle the mountain if you are already an experienced climber, as it is a tough and steep hike.

6. Enjoy a tour around England's deepest lake

A less demanding, but equally splendid experience is to tour the picturesque Wastwater Lake located beneath the Scafell Pike mountain. Discover England's deepest lake, voted 'Britain's Favourite View' and walk the road that winds along the shore to the Wasdale Valley. The lake is a picturesque place to visit and an ideal spot for quiet walks with a dramatic backdrop of the Lake District mountains.

7. Taste the delicious food at the Ratty Arms

Finally, after all your adventures, finish off with a traditional meal and a pint of cold local ale at the Ratty Arms. This traditional English pub offers a pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff and good quality food, with generous portions. The menu ranges from delicious sandwiches, seafood salads, steak with vegetables, chicken with mango chutney, tasty lamb and even dishes for the little ones such as chicken nuggets and pizza.
