Penrith is a historic market town acting as a regional centre for the eastern Lake District, lying just outside the Lake District National Park boundary. We are en-route to and from Scotland by road and railway and only 10 miles from the north Pennines. The welcoming town is the hub of the Eden Valley and a great base from which to explore the surrounding area. As well as the wealth of walking and cycling in the area, there are a host of other things to do and places to visit.

  • Please look through the other pages in this part of our website for more ideas on things to do.

  • We have also listed below some additional links to other attractions that may be of interest during your stay.

  • If you have any specific interests or would like any more information then please do not hesitate to contact us.

  • Thanks to Eden Tourism, Eden District Council for use of some of the photos in these Out & About pages.
