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 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.
