“Worth a climb”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Lovely views (weather permitting!) over Kendal and surrounding areas. The ruins seem well looked-after and a few interesting information boards are dotted around. Something different to add to a city visit, without straying too far from the centre.

“Well worth the climb”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

You can take a footpath up the hill to the castle and it's lovely to explore. Our 5-year old really enjoyed climbing up the little tower and looking out at the town below. And it's completely free!

Commanding location and good storytelling. Just not more than average.
