Nestled amongst majestic fells and with our striking castle, cobbled streets and meandering river, Kendal offers a unique Christmas shopping experience.

The independent shops of Kendal have come together to bring you additional opportunities to shop local when purchasing Christmas gifts this year.Our friendly business owners will be opening their doors late on 3rd, 10th & 17th of December and many will be opening each Sunday in the run up to Christmas too. Browse our ever expanding Christmas Shopping guide for inspiration.

Enjoy your Christmas shopping with the knowledge you will be supporting local artisans, makers and business owners at the end of a difficult year.

You could also enjoy  a festive meal and a warming drink at one of our many wonderful eateries.

Our wonderful shopping centres, yards and charming market place have been adorned with Christmas lights to welcome you to Kendal this December.
