Sam Tollerson, Commercial Assistant at Cumbria Tourism says, “Very few places in the British Isles have what we have – and it’s all on our door step – just waiting for us to explore. Since the launch of MyCumbria, I have been overwhelmed with the response both from businesses who want to take part and local people who want to make the most of local activities and attractions at a specially reduced price for residents. With the start of the summer holidays, it’s a great time to introduce family and friends to the MyCumbria card.
