If you’re looking forward to an action-packed summer in Cumbria, then any holiday would not be complete without a visit to one of our renowned agricultural shows. Teaming with traditional sports and activities such as Westmorland wrestling, show jumping and terrier racing. Not mention an extensive selection of local foods and Lake District delicacies.
