Workington in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... ethel austin, river island, HMV and costa coffee. As well as shops that have previously been in the centre but have now moved into larger shops such as JJB sports and new look. For a small town the night life in Workington is pretty good, the people are generally friendly and there's usually a good night to be had. People generally follow a circuit, people aged between about 17 and 25 follow the same path. Start at the bounty at around 7pm and have a coule of cheapish drinks in there, then move on to yankees for a quick one while the crowds still there, once it starts to empty the usual path is to the vine bar or the circit b... more

After living in Workington for 19 years i know alot about the place and it is fair to say it is boring to live here. However for the visitor i can see why people like to come here, it's not too far from the Lake District yet still has a town atmosphere about it. Workington is a large town and has recently undergone a regenration in the town centre meaning that there are lots of new shops there such as poundland, ethel austin, river island, HMV and costa coffee. As well as shops that have previously been in the centre but have now moved into larger shops such as JJB sports and new look. For a small town the night life in Workington is pretty good, the ...

I originally wrote this review for the Ciao Café. Since this is now a review about the actual town of Workington, I have cut down significantly on the "how I came to live there" bit, although I'm not removing it completely. ~~~The how I came to live there bit~~~ I had it all planned when we left Hull Uni in June 2003. I would get my dream job in London doing social research. Hubby (then fiancé) would carry on working in Hull for a brief time until he found a job in the South of England. We would then buy a house, get married and live happily ever after! Best laid plans..... In between planning our wedding whilst living ... Read the complete review

The night life is definateley worth going to Workington for. There is a great circuit around town which enables you to walk out of one pub, stagger slightly and fall in to the next. It all starts at Wetherspoons on Oxford street at around 7PM where stomachs are lined and cheap beer is drunk. The waltz to the next pub is the furthest you will go in one stint all night but it gives you a chance to burn off the cheesey chips that you have just consumed. Turn right as you go out of the door and head east, keep walking but be weary of the taxis wanting to kill you at the round about and keep going toward the traffic lights. On your right you will see Level 2, this is a fun ... Read the complete review

Workington is my place of birth, and having lived there for the first eighteen years of my life, I decided to get out...as the saying goes 'the grass is always greener on the other side!' When I was eighteen I moved to Manchester and then on to Newcastle, as well as travellign to London on a regular basis, these places all opened my eyes, and made me realise what I was missing not having lived in cities, but as I got used to them, there benefits faided away. I am now back living in Workington (for the moment) and have came to appreciate its benefits, that I took for granted when I was younger. Here is what I have to say about the town: Location: ...

Well, for anyone who travels this far north to Cumbria in the first place and is then prepared to drive at least 45 minutes from the motorway you may be slightly disappointed to find out that once you finally get to Workington or Wuck-in-'n as the locals call it you don’t understand a word anyone says. The accent in my hometown is slightly hard to decipher for people who aren’t used to it, as I learned when I moved to Manchester last year! The problem with going to Workington is; when you finally get here, there is almost nothing to do. Well unless you want to play Crown Green Bowls, go to the local parks, (and after 6pm these fill up with ... Read the complete review
