Why take the train to Barrow-in-Furness?
Barrow-in-Furness was once world-renowned for its ship building and steelworks industry, and you can find out all about its industrial past at the fascinating Dock Museum.
If you prefer seeing history first-hand, spend some time wandering the ruins of Furness Abbey, or exploring the wonderful Victorian architecture you'll find hidden round every corner of the town centre.
Fancy a spot of shopping? Try a visit to Portland Walk, the North West's largest open-air shopping centre, or hunt for bargains at the excellent indoor market.
And there's even more to enjoy once the sun goes down… Night owls should take the train to Barrow-in-Furness and head straight to the Duke Street area to experience the town's lively bar scene.
