Cars of the Stars Museum (Keswick)
In the opinion of the Everett family, this is a MUST - if, for nothing else, to see Del Boy's Reliant Robin. But the Sinclaire C5, The Batmobile, Fred Flintstone's Car, Lady Penelope's Pink Rolls Royce (from Thunderbirds), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and many many others are unmissable.

Lowther Hall and Castle
We visited Lowther Hall for the first time with our daughter (Beks) and grandchildren in the autumn of 2018. Earlier in the year, Beks had been there and was full of excitement about the "the Lost Castle" in the woods. It must be the most amazing adventure playground you will ever get the chance to take children too; genuinely magical and in such breath-taking surroundings. There is something for all ages, including some lengthy zip wires. You could spend literally hours there; and there are plenty of facilities for picnicking. The hall/castle too is fascinating. Not too much to take in, and yet plenty of interest to capture the imagination and make you feel like you'd like to go back to discover more. And, finally, the restored grounds are nothing less than a delight to walk through. Thoroughly recommended. It's just off the A6 near Penrith; about 45 to 50 minutes' drive.
