Penrith Partnership projects

Get in touch if you want to make it happen.

The historic market town of Penrith is the shopping, business and social centre of Eden District - with easy access to the beautiful Eden Valley and the Lake District.

Penrith is a vibrant community with much to offer visitors and lots going on locally. There are many independent shops in the town centre and most tastes are catered for by cafés, restaurants, pubs and other evening entertainments.

Please tell us about your event to add your Penrith business or organisation to our listings.

Parking is a particular concern for Penrith residents - if you are visiting by car, you will need to pick up a parking disc from a nearby shop straight away if you park on street in the centre of town.

There are many opportunities to get involved in Penrith life, such as joining clubs and volunteering. If you feel inspired, pen us a poem, send in a painting or poem - and let us know so we can put it online here.
