Lake District National Park Shopping: 13 reviews and 11 photos
This is actually a collection of shops - 12 outlets, a restaurant and heritage centre in one building with plenty of parking. I got some great bargains in shoes there.
There is also a good place to drink coffee or have a meal - the prices are reasonable and with good weather you can sit out of doors. The centre of Kendal is also worth visiting and the riverside walk is lovely (it is signposted).
What to buy: outdoor wear, shoes
What to pay: prices vary
