The Ship Hotel, Allonby


The Ship Hotel in Allonby was built in the late 18th Century. It was originally built as a coaching inn, which served travellers on the Workington to Carlisle road. The hotel prospered in the 19th century when Allonby was an important sea-bathing resort for the gentry. Historic England note that Charles Dickens stayed here on a tour of the Lakes in 1856.[1] A plaque on the hotel also states that Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins stayed here on the 9th of September, 1857.[2] The Ship Hotel is a Grade II listed building.
