Stunning limestone pavements, ancient woodlands, intimate orchards and meadows and an impressive coastline make Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty one of England's finest landscapes. The work of the AONB Partnership aims to conserve and enhance this extraordinary place now and for the future.
The Information Centre
Whether you need specialist advice on managing a piece of land or you are simply looking for a good walk in the area, the AONB staff are happy to help out.
Call us or visit the Information Centre at the Old Station Building, Arnside. Here you will find a great selection of leaflets on walking, cycling and the amazing wildlife in the AONB and a well-stocked reference library which you are welcome to use.
Due to Covid-19 and the introduction of additional safety precautions, however, the AONB office and Information Centre is currently operating with fewer staff and reduced hours until further notice. Opening hours are 10am -12pm Monday -Thursday. Please note however, that there may be occasions due to staff work commitments when the Information Centre has to remain closed during these hours. This will be the case on Wednesday 19th & Thursday 20th August.
To help keep us all safe, we are asking visitors to wear a facemask, always sanitise their hands when entering the building and maintain social distancing.
