Kendal Museum contains a number of internationally recognised collections, including natural history, archaeology, geology and herbarium collections, along with the largest taxidermy collection in Europe! The Quaker Tapestry Museum brings together 350 years of social history and Quaker stories in more than 40 vibrant embroidered panels, housed within a stunning and original Georgian Meeting House.

Sizergh Castle (NT) has been the home of the Strickland family for more than 750 years. Set in large, beautifully landscaped gardens and based on an impressive 14th Century solar tower, Sizergh was extended in Tudor times. The romantic fortified mansion contains some of the finest Elizabethan carved overmantels in the country, as well as a collection of good English and French furniture and family portraits. Of particular interest are the gardens surrounding the Castle, a notable feature being the largest limestone rock garden, including part of the National Collection of Hardy Ferns. Enchanting wildflower and water gardens also add to the charm of this estate.
