Arnside has been a fishing village, boat building centre and Victorian playground.

The stone jetty is testimony to the visiting pleasure craft of yesteryear.

A peaceful village with pretty shops, it attracts holidaymakers to its waterfront with magnificent views over to the Lakeland fells.

Arnside is popular with walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers.

The areas around Arnside are renowned as designated Areas of Outstanding Beauty and Sites of Scientific Interest because of the rare butterflies and alpine succulents that shelter amongst the limestone pavements.

You can drive or walk to Arnside Knott where you will be treated to a panoramic view of the Lakeland fells.

There are many lovely walks around Arnside Knott and up to the Pepper Pot at Silverdale.

Arnside Knott is a rolling 521-foot fell just south of the village. From here there are many lovely walks around the Knott and up to the Pepper Pot at Silverdale.

This quaint old former fishing village has a charming promenade with independent shops, pubs and cafes.

The fish and chip shop sells the best fish and chips for miles around.

From the promenade, the sunsets are spectacular and from the pier watching the tide roar in on the bore never fails to fascinate.

Arnside is two stops by train from Kents Bank Station.
