The areas around Arnside are renowned as designated Areas of Outstanding Beauty and Sites of Scientific Interest because of the rare butterflies and alpine succulants that shelter amongst the limestone pavements. There are many lovely walks around Arnside Knott and up to the Pepper Pot at Silverdale.
A quaint former fishing village, Arnside 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.
