Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. Penrith is known for parks, nature, shopping, historic sites, and wildlife. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic scenery at Aira Force, take in nature's colorful creations at Acorn Bank, let little ones run wild at Center Parcs - Whinfell Forest, and delve into the mystery of Long Meg and her Daughters.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Penrith tour itinerary planner.

London to Penrith is an approximately 3-hour train ride. You can also drive; or do a combination of flight and train. When traveling from London in July, plan for little chillier days and about the same nights in Penrith: temperatures range from 22°C by day to 17°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can go by car to Windermere.
