Seascale is a small coastal town in the Western Lake District. Situated between Whitehaven and Millom it is the perfect stop off when exploring this beautiful part of the Lake District.
In Victorian times it was a busy seaside resort. It still has a beach and walks that lead into the nearby countryside. The sea front has a jetty, a fort complete with cannon and fully rigged mast, a human sundial and buried time capsules.
