Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. Attractions like Center Parcs - Whinfell Forest and South Lakes Safari Zoo make great kid-friendly stops. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Penrith: The Grasmere Gingerbread Shop (in Grasmere), Alpacaly Ever After (in Portinscale) and The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction (in Bowness-on-Windermere). The adventure continues: admire the sheer force of Aira Force Waterfall, find something for the whole family at The Forbidden Corner, stroll through Catbells Lakeland Walk, and get your game on at Treetop Trek.

To see more things to do, ratings, photos, and more tourist information, use the Penrith travel route planner.
