The Roads and Passes of Cumbria and the Lake District

The M6 is the main trunk route through Cumbria from North to South, passing Carlisle, Penrith, and Kendal.

 

The A66 is the main trunk route through Cumbria from East to West, from Scotch Corner to Workington, passing Brough, Temple Sowerby, Penrith,
Keswick, and Cockermouth.

 

The AA Magazine has chosen the winding A686 road from Penrith in Cumbria to Corbridge in Northumberland, as one of their ‘Ten Great Drives’.

 

Some of our mountain passes such as Hard Knott and Wrynose are particularly challenging drives!
