Hotels in Penrith
On the north-eastern edge of the Lake District National Park stands the market town of Penrith. The capital of Cumbria in the 9th and 10th centuries, it remains an important destination within the Eden Valley. The bustling centre is filled with a wide range of sandstone buildings, independent shops, pedestrianised areas and local attractions.
Stay in one of the Penrith hotels listed here on the website and you'll be close to all of the town's major sights. Penrith and Eden Museum is a great place to begin a visit to the town as its exhibits tell the fascinating story of the local area. You'll get the chance to touch a carving etched out of rock 5,000 years ago, and learn all about the museum's collection of Roman coins.
Right in the heart of town is Penrith Castle, a 14th-century fort that's now surrounded by an attractive public park. Believed to have been built on the site of an old Roman fort, the castle played a key role in the defence of the Scottish border.
The attractive Lowther Castle and Gardens is situated to the south of Penrith, as is the nearby Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre, where visitors can see more than 150 birds including hawks, falcons, eagles and buzzards. A 20-minute drive to the north-west of Penrith is the Bronze Age stone circle known as Long Meg and her Daughters, a must-visit site for history fans.
The town's proximity to the national park means walking opportunities in the area are plentiful. Drive or catch a bus south towards Ullswater and Glenridding and before long you'll come to the breathtaking Aira Force, a tumbling waterfall set within a beautiful secluded valley. To the west of town lie the summits of Skiddaw and Blencathra, both offering excellent walking and dramatic views out across the surrounding landscape.
Penrith's regular markets attract a large number of shoppers to the town each week. On Tuesdays, traders descend on the Bandstand in Penrith town centre to sell a variety of goods and fresh produce. Penrith's Farmers' Market takes place on the third Tuesday of the month in Market Square.
Outside of market days there's always the option to wander through the town's pedestrianised streets and arcades, stopping off to browse in family-run businesses and national chain stores.
