C2C Cycle Route

Mile 55

Penrith

Known locally as the red town because of its sandstone buildings, Penrith provides ancient castles, squares, a market, superb hospitality and refreshment. It's continued importance as a market place for cattle and livestock, and it's more domestic market, ensure that the town retains its great character. Delightful alleyways run between Penrith's main streets - amongst them you’ll find more specialised shops that Penrith has a reputation for, such as fudge, cumberland sausage and gingerbread. There are many traditional pubs serving real ales, fine lagers and good food. Restaurants and tearooms are also to be found. The town is looked over by the famous Beacon which acted as a link for a communication train that ran the length of the country.
