Penrith (North Lakes) Station

As its name suggests, Penrith North Lakes Station is located in Cumbria, north of the Lake District’s largest lakes. Penrith lies just south of nearby Carlisle, which can be reached in half an hour by car and under twenty minutes by rail. A car park and cycle storage are available on site for those travelling to the station by road or bicycle.

Although a relatively small town, Penrith North Lakes station benefits from a central location just minutes away from the town’s castle park, which offers a great chance for respite after a long rail journey.
