Longtime supporter of Cumbria, HRH Prince Charles, returned to the county earlier this month, visiting a wide range of people and businesses across the county.

As well as meeting members of Langdale Mountain Rescue team in Ambleside, His Royal Highness also celebrated the 20th anniversary of CT members Hawkshead Relish, congratulating them on their effort and ingenuity in building a fantastic brand which helps raise Cumbria’s profile the world over.

Cumbria’s royal visitor also found the time in his busy schedule to officially open Cumbria’s newest attraction, and officially opened our county’s newest attraction – the Windermere Jetty Museum of Boats, Steam and Stores flowing its £20 million redevelopment by Lakeland Arts. Again, His Royal Highness’ strong links to the county were highlighted as he viewed Brankshome, the boat he sailed aboard when he visited the previous museum on the same site in 1977.
