    Details

    Maryport is a very pleasant town to discover on foot - built on a grid pattern in the 18thC, it is very easy to find your way around. Start at the harbour, recently refurbished to a high standard where pleasure craft are berthed. Take time to wander and enjoy the special seaward views and then find out about the fauna in the sea - the Aquarium does just that in a lively and informative way. Also by the harbour is the Maritime Museum - find out about the town's strong links to the tragic Titanic. On the north side of the harbour can be found more of the town's rich heritage - the Senhouse Roman Museum with its exceptionally well preserved collection of Roman sculptures. Retrace your steps to Fleming Square which is a beautifully conserved, cobbled town square while Senhouse Street close by has a host of local and specialist shops to browse. Try and visit when the town's maritime festival is in full swing to get the full flavour of Maryport.
