Workington town centre offers a real chocolate box of buildings dating throughout the ages. The recent regeneration the area has enjoyed also means that it has been updated to become a very modern town set in a very English, port setting.

Still a thriving port, Workington offers fantastic business links and has enjoyed the fruits of iron, steel and coal production over the years.

Although the steel industry has now halted in Workington, other industries have sprung up in its place to continue to make the area an excellent place to live, work and visit.

Choosing to visit Workington will surprise and delight you with the continued effort to keep it on the map and be a base to view the stunning surrounding countryside.

For a true sense of history, step onto the hallowed ground of St Michael's Church, a footprint occupied by religious buildings since the 7th Century or St John's Church designed by Thomas Hardwick in commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo, built in 1823. The proximity of Workington to the outstanding Lake District cannot be ignored.

A Budget hire car will allow you to head off into this wonderland of natural beauty in comfort and at your own pace. As you tour the many hills and valleys you will be amazed at the stunning scenery and understand why William Wordsworth felt such an affinity with The Lakes.

For touring the lakes, the addition of GPS satellite navigation hire to your rental package is the ideal way to ensure you find your way and navigate efficiently. The many lakes and valleys offer anglers the perfect excuse for a day spent at the water front. Remember that if travelling with a large amount of equipment it will be worth looking at the larger cars in the Budget range.

Also near the town is Workington hall, a sadly ruined fourteenth century manor house that was the one time refuge of Mary Queen of Scots on her final flight from Scotland.

The manor house was built around an existing pele tower, a tower constructed during the reign of Edward I as a defensive measure against the troublesome Scots. The manor house today, while a ruin of what it once was still plays a major role in entertainment in Workington.

It regularly hosts operas, plays and an annual medieval fair; the fair being named the 'Curwen Fair', after the lords of the manor who once inhabited the hall. Today the port of Workington is undergoing a regeneration effort with many shops and retailers investing in the town. This is hoped to modernise the town and give it a centre to be proud of.

Whether travelling to Workington on business or pleasure a Budget hire car will make your journey that much easier, with great rates and even better deals for those who book early, Budget truly is the ideal travel solution.
