Pocket Guide: Lake District Armitt Museum and Gallery Hotels

Cumbria is one of England's most popular holiday destinations, and for good reason! The charming county is packed with the some of the finest natural landscapes in all of Europe, spanning awe-inspiring peaks, luscious countryside and idyllic lakes. Cumbria may be one of the biggest counties in England, but it's also one of the most sparsely populated, making it the ideal place to go for a relaxing break. There's plenty to see and do in Cumbria, including the Armitt Museum and Gallery in Ambleside. Close to the tip of Windermere, it's in a prime tourist spot so there are plenty of Cumbria hotels to stay in nearby.

The Cultural Side of Cumbria

Cumbria is certainly best known for its natural beauty, the Lake District, in particular. But there's far more to this stunning county than just fabulous landscapes! It also has a fascinating cultural and intellectual past, spawning such famous names as John Ruskin, William Wordsworth and Mary Louisa Armitt, the founder of this museum and gallery.

The Armitt Museum and Gallery gives a nod to the cultural heritage of the Lake District. One of the central permanent exhibitions is devoted to one of the area's most loved women, also a benefactor of the Armitt - Beatrix Potter. Entitled Beatrix Potter: Image and Reality, the exhibition explores different facets of the artists' work and private life.
