Penrith is a place where people go specifically to do some shopping.  It is known for being a market town where locals sell their wares and visitors can pick up nearly anything that their hearts desire at relatively inexpensive prices.  For this reason, there really is not a bad place to go in the town in terms of shopping opportunities.  Around every corner is a shopping spree waiting to happen.

Visitors looking for more specific locations to be sure to check out in the area can choose from the following options:

             A visit to New Squares is a must, with a selection of indivdual shops and

            Angel Lane – This is a great street for window-shopping because no cars or motor bikes are allowed here so visitors can wander                     a round, distracted by all that there is to buy, without any concern for traffic.

  • Angel Square – Located just off of Angel Lane , this shopping center is a terrific spot for seeing what local shop owners have for sale.
  • Devonshire Arcade – This is the place to go for visitors who are interested in buying higher-end and name-brand items.
  • Rheged ( ) – This is a shopping mall which is popular with travelers who are in Penrith with their families.  There are activities and a playground to keep children of all ages entertained while parents shop and there are restaurants to curb the hunger everyone feels after a long day at the mall.
