“Always beautiful, whatever the weather!”

One of the areas main attractions, a great walk, no matter if it's in rain or shine. There are various approaches to the castle, something for everyone, young or old! A favourite place of mine!

“Your average castle”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

A nice place to visit on a walk, but nothing particually special about it! They have events there sometimes like fireworks on 5th november and it's well worth a visit then!

“Good views”

A nice 10 min stroll up the steep hill from the river to the castle ruins gave nice views of Kendal.

“Historic Castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Went on a Kendal walk which included the Kendal Castle. There was a quite a steep hill to walk up but was worth it as both the castle ruins were very interesting and view over Kendal is magnificent. It started raining and we were able to take shelter in the part of the ruin which resembled a cave. The castle has some wooden steps up leading to a platform to allow you to get a better view of the ruins.

“Be prepared to climb but when you get to the top....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2012

Be prepared to trek up the steep hill but when you get to the top, the view is just breathtaking and amazing. We were just blown away by the scenery of Kendall and its surrounding district.

The castle was restored in some ways and the history on the signboard was very helpful. If we visit Kendall again in near future, we will climb the hill to Kendal Castle again.
