Penrith is a market town and civil parish in the county of Cumbria, England. Visit Aira Force Waterfall and Lowther Castle and Gardens for their historical value. Visiting Catbells Lakeland Walk and Boat Tours & Water Sports will get you outdoors. Step out of Penrith with an excursion to Alpacaly Ever After in Portinscale--about 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the activities along Derwentwater, pause for some serene contemplation at St Lawrences Church, stop by Braithwaite General Store, and steep yourself in history at Shap Abbey.
