Great Places to See Sand Dunes in Cumbria

© Cumbria Wildlife Trust

Our sand dunes are home to an array of rare wildlife, yet are constantly changing environments

Working with Dynamic Dunescapes, a national project restoring sand dune across England and Wales, we have put together this guide for you to uncover the secrets of the sand dunes in Cumbria. Learn about the wildlife, history and hidden gems within these special environments and find out what we are doing to help the wildlife that lives there.

From Silloth to Walney Island, there’s many places you can go to explore, connect and enjoy these pockets of wilderness.
