Secret Solway tours take visitors on a journey through the ages exploring the lands known as ‘the place where the glaciers met the sea’. This spectacular area, to the west of Carlisle in Cumbria, has distant views of the Lake District Fells and across the beautiful Solway estuary to the Scottish hills. Weaving their way through scenic rural lanes and villages, tours visit some of the less well known historic and natural sites on the Cumbrian Solway coastal plains. This is an area rich in history, wildlife and surprising stories. Secret Solway tours are designed to share the beauty, history and stories of the area with visitors.
