Cockermouth has a wide selection of shops where you can purchase most items from everyday essentials to unique hand crafted gifts. The majority of shops are on the three main central streets of Main Street, Market Place & Station Street with others in the smaller roads leading off these and also in some of the courts.

A 'Town Trail' booklet (30p) is available at the TIC and in The New Bookshop (on Main Street opposite the junction with Station Street). Walking at your own pace it is an ideal way to see and find out about Cockermouth, its history, architecture and the famous people who lived here. Apart from a certain well known poet Cockermouth is also famous, among others, for a mutineer and the father of atomic theory. Who are they all? Come and find out!

Cockermouth Tourist Information Office is a few yards from the museum by the entrance to Riverside/Market Place car parks :
