Called in here early one Saturday morning. It was a lovely day and it set off the whole setting perfectly. The castle ruins are nicely surrounded by a lovely park, and it gives the feeling of somewhere that's cared for.

the ruin of Penrith Castle is very conveniently located opposite the Penrith railway station. There is nothing very much to see.

Ruined castle, easy to follow lay out, an hour at most for people to have a look around no cost, park nearby on main road

Lovely castle and surrounding park. There’s a good play area and lots of open spaces for walking, playing and walking the dogs. There are also sports courts and a bowling green.
I thought the castle could have had a little more information and history but a very lovely place to visit and still fascinating.
