Penrith, the former capital of Cumbria, remains a busy town in this lovely part of northern England.

There is a popular shopping centre in Penrith, with a good mix of standard shops and independent boutiques. In particular, there is a wealth of local crafts goods available due to the thriving arts community in the region.
