Last year, Golakes and Cumbria Tourism
trialled a new visitor rewards card called Love Cumbria. 
The Love Cumbria card included a range of offers such as ‘2 for 1s’ and up to 30% off entrance to popular attractions, cafes and restaurants.
The card cost just £10, giving 2 people easy access to the offers for a 2 week period from the date of arrival in the Lake District, Cumbria.

The card scheme was a great success, so we hope to repeat this offer for visitors again this November.
