Whitehaven

Whitehaven is in West Cumbria, on the North-West coast of the country. The town has been around since Irish-Norse Vikings settled in the area in the 10th century. The town is described as a Georgian town and is referred to many times as a Georgian Gem of the North. The town is famous for its historic harbour and Georgian buildings. The Queen visited the town in 2008 to re-open The Beacon Museum on the harbourside. The town greeted her in true Cumbrian style as over 10,000 people came out in force with Union Jack flags in tow on the harbour where she greeted many members of the public and school children who all came to meet her. She came with her husband the Duke of Edinburgh (Prince Philip).
