Kendal : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Built from the local limestone, the "Auld Grey Town" of Kendal is the thriving centre for a wide area. It was the birthplace of Henry VIII's sixth wife, Catherine Parr, but was famous for its wool trade well before her day. From the castle, there is a fine view of the town and its hill backdrop. Kendal is also renowned for its Mint Cake, a chocolate-covered delicacy known for its energy-giving qualities.
