/ Kendal - what to do?
Ok, never been to Kendal before, will be there for a day/evening some time in May - what is there to do / see around there?
What would your recommendations be - and I don't mean climbing / walking unfortunately.
Can you do Kendal Mint Cake factory visits like you do distillery tours in Scotland?
Some interesting suggestions on here:
Fell Bar for nice beer
Brewery Arts Centre for a film / entertainment
The Moon for a nice meal
Mumbai for a nice curry
Method for cool daytime food and coffee
Abbott Hall for whatever exhibition is on

You can also easily catch the train up to Staveley for hawkshead brewery, eagle and child pub and More bakery.
Have a great time, whatever you decide.
