Are you a business in Western Lake District and Coast area?
The Western Lake District and Coast group is a not for profit organisation set up a number of years ago to support tourism businesses in the area and help promote them through its website, network and social media channels. This was in response to a strongly-expressed and urgent need from many voices for a body dedicated to asserting ourselves as a location in our own right, with a unique landscape, history and character, with a comprehensive offering to make not only to tourists but also those seeking to make their homes and livings here. We invite all businesses and organisations in our area to join us as supporters, to leverage our greater strength as a community in presenting and promoting our region to the wider marketplace.
The Western Lake District & Coast group is delighted to announce that thanks to support from Copeland Borough Council, Sellafield and working closely with our county Destination Management Organisation, Cumbria Tourism, we are able to offer complimentary membership of the group to businesses which will inevitably help support recovery from the current Coronavirus crisis when the time is right.
We invite all businesses and organisations in our area to join us and work together as supporters, to leverage our greater strength as a community in presenting and promoting our region to the wider marketplace.

- Free listing on westernlakedistrict.com which is currently under redevelopment.
- Publicity for events
- Active social media, blogs presence, to include Facebook, Instagram to share your stories.
- Dedicated PR campaign
- Included where applicable in information given out at national travel and tourism shows when the recovery begins
