Food & Drink Guide
Did you know, food tourism is the largest growing sector in the visitor market and is responsible for £429m coming into the local economy?
It is not surprising as Cumbria has a quality offering for all, from the discerning foodie to the touring family, romantic meals for two, to a tour round one of our excellent breweries.
Cumbria Tourism has produced a guide for 2013 to showcase what this wonderful county has offer to its food tourists.
“Food & Drink” will follow the tried and tested format of the official attractions guide, with over 60 advertisers giving the visitor a good cross section of quality food businesses across the county. From dog friendly pubs, quality cafes to beautiful dining in some of the UK's best restaurants this will be the ultimate food guide for the Cumbrian visitor.
100,000 copies are being distributed across the county in high footfall tourists sites, hotels, B&Bs, bus and railway stations and key route motorway service stations.
Bookings are now closed for 2013, however for more information in the guide, please contact Sue on 01539 825018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
