The Visit Eden Team acknowledges the importance of tourism to the economy of Eden and sings the praises of Eden as a world class visitor destination through our website print and social media.

The team carries out a variety of activities to help sustain and attract more visitors to the area, as well as offer support to our Tourism businesses and promotional opportunites.

Visit Eden website

Our destination website has lots of useful information including an accommodation section.  It also features attractions, eateries, walking and cycling information including cycle routes and events. There is also information on Eden's towns and villages plus lots more.  The website has responsive design so can be viewed on mobile devices.

Visit Eden leaflet


Brochures, guides and leaflets still remain an important part of the holiday planning process despite the growing influence of digital media.  

We have produced a brand new Visit Eden leaflet for 2024 to showcase the area to visitors.

A complete set of free "Do in a Day" Eden cycling leaflets for Penrith, Ullswater, Alston and the North Pennines and Appleby and Kirkby Stephen are available.  The leaflets are available from local Tourist Information Centres and on our website.
