Sometimes called 'The Gateway to The Lakes', Kendal stands on the River Kent in the South Lakeland District of Cumbria.
A great base for walkers looking to explore the Lake District or nearby Yorkshire Dales National Park, there's plenty to see and do within this charming market town itself, too. From the eerie ruins of Kendal Castle and Castle Howe to Kendal Museum and the many pubs and restaurants scattered around the Highgate area - take a train to Kendal station and you'll be perfectly placed to discover it all…
And, of course, you must make sure you pick up some Kendal mint cake to take home as a souvenir (although it's so tasty it might well not survive the train journey home!).
