Penrith is so much more than just a place to holiday and have fun
Lying just outside the National Park, Penrith is a large town that has a reputation as the regional centre and the eastern gateway to the Lakes. Once the capital of Cumbria, Penrith has excellent transport links and is known for its wide variety of shops and attractions.
Because it is a bustling market town, Penrith is a great place to stop as it not only provides beauty, but also many 21st century offerings too - it has the best of both worlds.
Penrith is also unique as it is dominated by Beacon Fell, a rich red sandstone outcrop. In fact, the sandstone was used for much of the town's buildings and is now a major characteristic of Penrith.
In terms of attractions, Penrith has plenty of buildings of significant interest so there is always something for you to see and experience. The Church of St Andrew has a lot of history behind it and is thought to have been a place of worship for over 1,500 years. Penrith Museum is also a popular place to head and is itself housed in a listed building that was once an old seventeenth century schoolhouse.
There is a real mix of attractions in Penrith as you can enjoy all the places and monuments from the past that still exist today; but you can also enjoy all modern aspects too including all the town has in terms of shopping facilities. It can easily be described as the shopping hub of the Eden Valley.
