Lying just outside the boundary of the Lake District National Park, Cockermouth is an attractive market town not overwhelmed by the tourist atmosphere of Keswick and Ambleside. It is one of only 51 towns in Great Britain designated as a 'Gem' town and is, therefore, recommended for preservation by the state as part of our national heritage. Cockermouth grew up at the junction of the two most important rivers in the area. Here the River Cocker, flowing out of the lakes Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater meets the River Derwent on its journey from lakes Derwent and Bassenthwaite to the sea at Workington.
Todays visitors are attracted by the town's calm, its nearness to some of the more peaceful lakes and mountains, also the fact that Dorothy and William Wordsworth were born here in a large Georgian house in the Main Street, which is now a National Trust Property. Another famous son of Cockermouth was Fletcher Christian, the man who led the mutiny on 'The Bounty'.
There is the Kirkgate Centre for art, theatre, film and music. Cockermouth has a large proportion of high quality, small independent shops including local butchers, bakers, greengrocers, and fishmongers. There are antique and gift shops plus good cafes, restaurants and cosy inns.
