Kendal is known as being a place of serenity and beauty
Kendal is known as being a place of serenity and beauty and is located in one of the most desirable parts of England - the Lake District. The delightful market town is also only half an hour's drive away from the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so is easily accessible and is surrounded by other delightful areas with which you can explore.
One of the best things about Kendal is the wealth of opportunities that are on offer. From cultured attractions including historic art centres and museums, to more lively shops and outgoing leisure facilities - there is something to tickle your fancy.
One of the best museums the area is home to is the Museum of Natural History and Archaeology. One of the oldest museums in the country, it is immersed in fabulous history and proves to be a day out that all the family will love. Home to displays of local and global history it is well worth a visit. Similarly, Kendal Castle also has a wealth of heritage and history surrounding it and is worth visiting even though it is now mainly a ruin. It offers great views of the town too. There are so many things to see in Kendal that you will be spoilt for choice.
Because the town is blessed with beautiful countryside surrounding it however; no trip would be complete without exploring the natural delights. There are some pretty places to walk to and enjoy a picnic and all offer the chance of peace and quiet - just what is needed on any break away.
As well as good accommodation and excellent attractions, Kendal also offers some fabulous eateries throughout its boundaries and is famed for the varied choice. There are Chinese restaurants, Indian restaurants, Italian restaurants and French restaurants, plus, good old fashioned public houses serving traditional English dishes.
Rococo Joes is a pizzeria restaurant that stands out and is highly regarded and the Mumbai restaurant for Indian cuisine is also very popular. If you want a more traditional dish however, Finkles or the Stonecross Manor Hotel both provide good food.
