The Waverley, close to the station on Curzon Street is a popular hotel especially with the local club who hold meetings there.
The Golden Lion, recently returned to its former glory, has been a Shipping Brow landmark since the 17th Century when it was a coaching inn. Charles Dickens visited the Golden Lion and it was here that George Stephenson signed the Carlisle to Maryport railway company contract.
