A tranquil spot on the coast is home to spectacular sunrises and sunsets.

Walkers are most likely to know St Bees for its inclusion in Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk which runs for 192 miles from the Irish Sea to the North Sea.

The western point of the route sets off from the small seaside village of St Bees and passes through the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, and North York Moors national parks, before reaching the eastern point at Robin Hood’s Bay.

St Bees itself is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest as well as a RSPB reserve, it is home to the northwest England’s only cliff-nesting seabird colony which can be seen from three separate viewing points.

One of the main attractions of this part of the coast are the views, sunrises and sunsets are particularly spectacular, on a clear day you can see the Isle of Man in the distance.

Head over to St Bees lighthouse on the North Head which is the most westerly point of Northern England, for some stunning panoramic views.
