Ravenglass is on the A595 between Barrow-in-Furness and Whitehaven. It is the only coastal town within the Lake District National Park and is on the estuary of three rivers: the Esk, the Mite and the Irt. Ravenglass was important as a naval base for the Romans in the 2nd century as Glannaventa. There are ruins of a Roman bath in the village. The main street is paved with sea cobbles. It leads up from the shingle beach. Iron ore, granite and copper ore were brought to the estuary by narrow gauge railway from mines near Boot, about 8 miles away. This line is preserved as the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, a major tourist attraction. Muncaster Castle is nearby, with splendid gardens and an owl centre. Drigg Dunes, a nature reserve, are home to a large colony of Black Headed Gulls. There are bed and breakfasts (b&b) and guesthouses in the village and nearby. There are also a number of inns and hotels within five or six miles distant.
