The nearby Lake District National Park is a mountainous region that’s famous across the UK for its stunning natural beauty. With soaring peaks, rolling verdant hills and crystalline lakes, it is surely one of the most dramatic landscapes in the country. Penrith sits on the park’s eastern edge, making it a popular base for those who come in their thousands to explore the region.
Penrith Castle sits in the centre of town and is one of the areas key historical landmarks. This now-ruined structure dates back to 1399 and was initially built as a defence against Scottish raids. Today the castle is maintained by English Heritage and enjoys grade I listed status. Guided tours of both castle and grounds are offered and locals enjoy coming here for the tranquil grounds as much as for the castle itself.
