Penrith ©
Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. Get in touch with nature at Aira Force Waterfall and Derwentwater. You'll explore and learn at Solway Aviation Museum and Ruskin Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Lanercost Priory (in Lanercost), The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction (in Bowness-on-Windermere) and Alpacaly Ever After (in Portinscale). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Lakeland Bird of Prey Centre, steep yourself in history at Stott Park Bobbin Mill, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Keld Chapel, and have some family-friendly fun at Treetop Trek.
