“Castle Hike”
Review of Kendal Castle

We had instructions to get to the castle from our hotel which took us a very scenic route, along by the river, though a park, which had an unusual carved seat, then a walk up to the castle. We were surprised at how much is still standing and the views of Kendal and the surrounding area from the hill are well worth the hike. The grass was wet from a rain shower which made ascending the hill to the castle a bit on the slippery side and it was quite muddy in places. Well worth a visit though

The castle ruins are very close to the town and easily accessible by a pleasant walk up the hill. I went alone at about 7pm during a July evening and there were just enough (not too many) other people out enjoying the quiet, the views, and walking their dogs. Very pleasant.

History is always fascinating and the walk along the river and up to the castle is really enjoyable one. There is plenty to see along the way especially the views over the Lake District and over the town, always better on a sunny day; what more is there to enjoy in life.

Some pleasant walks lead up to the castle, & the view is worth the climb. The information boards are interesting, especially the panorama which names the distant peaks of the lakeland fells.

Worth the climb up the hill for the sweeping views. Castle itself is quite small but worth walking around and seeing inside.
