Whilst staying in the English Lake District why not take a day out in Kendal, home of the famous mint cake founded by Joseph Wiper. Kendal is the largest town in Westmoreland and is situated just 6 miles from junction 36 of the M6.



Kendal town is characterised by the narrow yards and lanes branching from the main street yet it is only less than one mile from the national park boundary. The town has 5 shopping arcades and the centre has recently been pedestianised . The town has many historic places of interest including the parish church, Kendal castle and many houses dating back to the 1600s.



There is also a strong link with the footwear industry, Kendal being home to the famous K-Shoes brand up until the factories ceased to operate around 2003. The warehouse on the edge of town now houses one of Kendal’s excellent shopping arcades.
