About Us

The Port of Workington is wholly owned and operated by Cumbria County Council, which is the Statutory Harbour Authority, and is an independent Municipal Port established in 1975.  Located on the west coast of the UK, the Port is a strategic hub serving Northern England & Scotland.

The Port’s principal cargo handling facilities are centred on the Prince of Wales Dock. This modern enclosed dock has a total water area of 2.6 hectares and a quay frontage of 773m providing 7 berths plus a ro-ro facility.

The Port also offers rail freight services via its main line connection. All berths are rail-connected and the Port Authority operates its own locomotives on the site’s extensive internal rail system.
