Plan your perfect Adventure...

Penrith Heritage Trail

This Trail has been extracted from the Penrith Heritage Trail leaflet which we produced in partnership and with funding from Historic England along with the Eden Heritage app.Penrith Heritage Trail leaflet

All the places mentioned here are open to the public, and most are easy to access by car, public transport or on foot. Some sites are free to visit; whilst others have an admission fee.

The map indicates the locations of all the key sites. The symbols next to each entry indicate the facilities available. There is no suggested start point or trail to follow; rather the aim is for you to explore Eden's historic attractions at your leisure.
