Review of Carnforth by Sheila Ashcroft on April 28th, 2007
I live and work in Carnforth and it's great! It is a small market town where the folk really are friendly. It's a great place to come for a day out after which you can push on up to the Arnside & Silverdale AONB and the Lakes. Come & take a look at the newly restored Carnforth Station & Visitor Centre (where I am the Manager!) which will amaze you with its fabulous exhibitions and Refreshment Room. Carnforth Station is famous as the setting for David Lean's classic film "Brief Encounter" where you will also see the famous clock. Come & visit us in sunny Carnforth! It's a lovely town in the heart of rural north Lancs which I am sure you will love!

Review of Carnforth by ray on October 9th, 2007
Carnforth has the advantage of being the gateway to the South Lakes,situated adjacent to the Yorkshire Dales and being on the northern edge of Morecambe Bay. Carnforths location is advantageous for those who love the country side,stunning views, walking (including cross bay walks with the famous Cedric Robinson),the Pennines,Silverdale and many other local beauty spots.There is of course the nature reserve at Leighton Moss where thousands of birds stop off for food and rest.Morecambe Bay also attracts many visitors od the 'twitching' variety who also enjoy the spectacle of birds feeding on the mud flats. Carnforth also boasts the railway museum where trips on steam trains can be had. The canal which runs thru Carnforth has some of the most spectacular views to be seen anywhere of the Bay and Lake district mountains(especially when the sun dips and the sky turns orange, pink and red. The sunsets are truly splendid and are a must for any visitor. There are a plethora of eating and drinking places offering the very best of local cuisine. Carnforth is well worth more than a short visit.It has a great deal for the visitor to discover.
