Kendal is an old market town located within the county of Cumbria, North England near to the Lake District and is often referred to as the 'southern gateway to the Lakes'. It is probably most famous for Kendal Mint Cake, a lovely local delicacy high in sugar, originally designed for walkers through the Lakes to keep their energy levels up.
There are many places of interest here including the Kendal Museum of Natural History and Archaeology (one of the oldest in the country, it includes an exhibition on the geology of the Lake District).
Kendal is an ideal base for explorers of the Lake District and also offers a nice blend of history (museums and historic art) and shopping (many independant stores offering a variety of unique produce).
