Kendal, anciently known as Kirkby in Kendal or Kirkby Kendal, is a market town and civil parish within the South Lakeland District of Cumbria, England. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Haverigg Beach and Earnse Bay. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hawkshead Grammar School and Stott Park Bobbin Mill. Venture out of the city with trips to Tarn Hows (in Coniston), Loughrigg Fell (in Ambleside) and Cartmel Priory (in Cartmel). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Predator Experience, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, contemplate the waterfront views at Lake Windermere, and steep yourself in history at Townend.

To find traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Kendal travel planner.

London to Kendal is an approximately 3-hour train ride. You can also drive; or do a combination of flight and train. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Mon) early enough to travel to Buttermere.
