Allonby Car Park is free to use and open 24 hours. Central and just a 5 min walk to the beach.


To reach Allonby, if you're coming from the south, take the M6 to Carlisle and then follow the A595 towards Workington, turning off towards Allonby. From the north, take the A596 to Maryport, then switch to the B5300, which leads directly to Allonby. From here, the beach is just a short walk away.


Unsure, we didn't stumble across any public toilets. Although there are plenty of cafes, retail places where you could go.
