Alston Local Links - Tourist Information Services
Alston in the North Pennines is surrounded by a unique landscape of moorland, hills and rivers and can claim to be one of England's highest market towns. The town is also a 'Walkers are Welcome' town.
Alston Local Links is one of the nine local links offices in Cumbria which deliver services locally to the community. Local links services are provided through a partnership formed between the county's six district councils, Cumbria County Council, the Lake District National Park, the Police and the Primary Care Trust.
The friendly and knowledgeable team can help you make the most of your visit and can provide you with all you need to know about where to stay, where to eat, plus things to do and local travel information.
Come and visit the centre while you are here and you won't miss a thing!
