We were traveling by train and foot; the center of Kendal is a very easy walk from the train station. Number of different eateries in town, and it's situated on a river with some cobblestone streets, so very charming generally.

5/5 - Excellent

The town has so much history and beautiful old buildings. We visited the Abbot Hall art gallery and Museum of Lakeland life and industry. Abbot Hall is a Georgian house built in the mid 1700s. Lovely town with lots to see and do.
