The historic market town of Penrith is the shopping, business and social centre of Eden District. With easy access to the beautiful Eden Valley, the Pennines and Lake District, we truly are at the heart of Cumbria. A perfect destination for you to explore the Eden Valley and Lake District.
Penrith has much to offer visitors and lots going on locally. Stroll around the cobbled lanes of our town centre and explore our wealth of independent shops. Unwind in our boutique cafes or restaurants offering fine dining and world cuisine. Enjoy our lively pubs and evening entertainments, from cinema and theatre to concerts and events. Indulge in our leisure facilities right here in town or base yourself here to explore all the outdoor and family attractions our area has to offer. Thinking of staying a little longer? We have many fantastic places to stay, and plenty of places to pamper yourself too! We are also home to a thriving business community, with business services that are second to none.
