This Georgian town, situated on the west coast of Cumbria, was one of the first post-renaissance planned towns in the country. Built on shipping and mining, both industries have now declined, but Whitehaven is never-the-less an attractive town and is one of the 40 Gem Towns in England.
Much effort has gone into the regeneration of the harbour area, which is now host to many visits from tall ships.
The population of Whitehaven is approximately 25500.
