Things to do and see

In Wasdale, we recommend the following:

  • Walking!
  • The Smallest Church in England, St Olaf's at Wasdale Head - sad features of the tiny churchyard are the graves of climbers killed on the surrounding mountains
  • A gentle stroll around the valley head, visiting the old pack horse bridge over the beck behind the hotel

In the surrounding area, we recommend the following:

  • The West Cumbrian Coast with the Roman port of Ravenglass
  • The Ravenglass to Eskdale Railway
  • Muncaster Castle
  • The Beautiful Ennerdale Valley
  • The Maryport Aquarium 

The staff at the Wasdale Head Inn will be pleased to provide further information relating to any of the above.
