Advantages: Pubs & Nighlife, Value, Quality of life
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: Workington is a town with about 25,000 people. It is located on the west coast, about 35 miles from Carlisle, which provides the main road links. Workington is also situated on the edge of the lake district, and is the capital of West Cumbria.
Shopping: In the town there are most of the regular high street names, and more of the popular ones are coming, such as Game and Debenhams. We are also getting a small shopping centre, and the biggest Tesco store in Cumbria. There is one out of town shopping centre/cinema and a few retail parks.
Sports/Leisure: There is one main sports centre in Workington, as well as several private gyms. Workington is also home to a amateur football, rugby league and rugby union team.
On the outskirts of town is a six screen cinema complex, the only one in West Cumbria.
Nightlife: Workington has ace nightlife for a small town with about 20 pubs and 2 nightclubs on the town circuit, as well as many others here and there. Circuit pubs to go to are: Yankees, The Well, Scruples Bar, Jailhouse, Circuit Bar, Minors, Grapes, Blue Bell, Vine Bar, Barnabyes, Dukes Bar, The Curwen, Elliotts, Royal Oak, Level 2 and Weatherspoons, followed by one of our nightclubs.
Quality of life: Overall in Workington, you have a good quality of life, you are si
tuated near the lakes and Scotland, and hosuing is cheaper than anyware in England. Please visit us and boos the local economy!!!
