  • What a great castle to visit! - Free access at all hours - No admission charges - Stairs to climb a half-ruined tower - Incredible views To my mind, this is how castles should be: no fussy entrance bother, no tickets or times or restrictions. Just friendly litter-gatherers and groundsmen, great views, plenty of chance to poke around.
  • Grew up being able to look at the castle from my house. Have always loved it. Great place, great views from castle.
  • Ruins if the Kendal Castle. We went when it was drizzling and still had a good time. Kids did a reenactment battle and a bit of hide and seek. Nice view of Kendal from the top of the hill.
  • Wonderful views over Kendal and the surrounding hills. Historical information board giving an insight into the local history. Interesting castle.
  • Loved the walk up to the castle. Great view. Went to the bonfire and fireworks display which was amazing. In into my history especially the Tudors! So was great to know that the Parr family had lived here. Deff worth the visit.
