Pocket Guide: Lake District Cumberland Pencil Museum Hotels

Cumbria is a county best known for its vast areas of outstanding natural beauty. The county is home both to the famous Lake District and some of England's tallest mountains. It's not only the great outdoors which lures in so many holidaymakers each year, though. Cumbria also boasts a fascinating history, with plenty of exciting attractions to tell its story. One of the county's quirkier historical highlights is the Cumberland Pencil Museum, located on the streets of Keswick. This part of the Lake District is also home to some spectacular hotels and guesthouses.

The Cumberland Pencil Museum

The first pencil factory opened in Keswick way back in 1832. Since that time, the north of England has crafted and exported millions of pencils all over the world. The museum opened in 1981, rapidly developing into one of Cumbria's foremost attractions. Today, the Cumberland Pencil Museum welcomes more than 80,000 visitors annually.

The highlight of the museum is the world's largest colouring pencil, which was completed in 2001 and weighs almost 450kg! The museum houses the world's first pencil, as well as a brand new World War II Secret Pencil Exhibition.

The Cumberland Pencil Museum is well equipped with handy facilities, designed to make your visit run as smoothly as possible. There's a kids' zone packed with activities to keep the youngsters entertained. There's also a coffee shop for refreshments and a gift shop for souvenirs. Disabled access is provided.
