Advantages: you feel very safe even though you are walking through a town centre
Disadvantages: none really
Kendal is probably the biggest market town in the south lake district. It has alot of shops and alot to see and do. There is two castle, museums, factory outlets, shops, hotels, and historic buildings. Kendal is also the home of the famous Kendal Mint Cake which you have to try when you visit. Kendal also takes place in cumbria in bloom with some lovely collections of flowers, i think it was 2007 it won.
The main street is full of shops with high street names and speciality shops but there is also alot of backstreets leading off which also have lots of small shops, hairdressers and others boutique style, speciality shops.There is also a markets that visits kendal where you can pick up some nice bargains. There is a small indoor shopping centre which has shops like argos and vision express in.
Kendal is also home to a large population and has alot of houses in the area. I would think Kendal is an extremely useful Town to live close to. I live about 30 minutes away now which does come in useful but i dont visit too often. However, when i do visit, it is always a nice experience,i feel very safe walking around this town and always come home with a decent amount of shopping bags and bargains.
