Where to stay in Kendal

About Kendal

Once a major British textile centre, Kendal is now a market town with specialty shops, museums and teahouses serving the region’s signature mint cakes. You can explore castles, breweries and nature reserves, as well as the city’s lively theatre and arts scene.

Things to do

Get to know the town and surrounding countryside by strolling the grounds and ruins of 13th-century Kendal Castle, once home to Katherine Parr, wife of Henry VIII. Tour the 13th-century Parish Church to see the old sanctuary, organ, coats of arms, swords and Caen stone edifices with Kendal Fell marble pillars.

Visit the Museum of Lakeland Life & History to discover local history through folk art, photography and a re-created Victorian farmers home. Marvel at the unique taxidermy wildlife at Kendal Museum, then discover world masterpieces at Abbot Hall Art Gallery. Don’t miss seeing the Quaker Tapestry Exhibition with its interactive displays, films and costumes created by at least 4,000 people.

Stroll the gardens of historic Sizergh Castle or take a nature walk to see fritillary butterflies in the woodland glades and spectacular views of Morecambe Bay, the Lakeland Fells and Pennines. Visit Levens Hall to walk in Levens Deer Park, have tea in the Bellingham Buttery Tea Room and enjoy its enormous garden topiaries.

Just north of town you’ll find Hawkshead Brewery, a favourite gathering spot for live music and craft brews, such as Tiramisu Imperial Stout. In the evening, enjoy theatre, cinema, comedy and concerts at the Brewery Arts Centre. Arrive early for a meal at the on-site Grainstore Restaurant.

Getting around

Buses, taxis and bicycle hire shops offer transportation around town. Rental cars are available in the city or at Blackpool International Airport, about 87 kilometres away.
