The North West region of England has a great deal to offer the visitor - with golden beaches, miles of unspoilt coastline and some of the UK's largest dockland areas. As with other regions of the country this area is one of contrasts - with working ports rubbing shoulders with nature reserves and dense urban areas intermingled with areas of outstanding natural beauty. The area is rich in maritime history boasting some of the major locations for shipbuilding in the country all in all a very interesting place to visit.

Travel in North West England

Road transport throughout the region is mostly good as the area is served by one of the UK's major north/south route - the M6. There are motorway spurs off of the M6 to the Liverpool area along the M62 and to the Blackpool area via the M55. The only area that is rather less accessible is the Cumbrian coastline around Workington but the scenic A66 is a good access route to use as it takes in much of the Lake District along the way.
