Barrow was a small fishing village on the Furness peninsula until the mid Victorian era when the building of the railway allowed iron ore to be transported to the area and smelted. It has natural harbour, so the steel production led to shipbuilding. The shipyard became a significant builder of vessels for the Royal Navy. Despite military budget cuts, it remains the largest submarine production facility in the United Kingdom. As a holiday destination, it is close to the Lake District National Park, borders on Morecombe Bay and the Irish Sea, with miles of sands, and is a sizeable town. As such there are plenty of shopping and dining options. There are a number of hotels, but some are charging no more than bed and breakfast establishments, so perhaps should be viewed with caution and considered to be guesthouses rather than full hotels.
