Penrith New Squares


Penrith is situated approximately 3 miles from the Lake District National Park boundary in the picturesque surroundings of the Eden Valley.  The town is 19 miles south of Carlisle and 28 miles north of Kendal.  The town is easily accessible from Junction 40 of the M6 and lies at the intersection of the A66, A6 and A686 linking the town to Keswick and the wider Lake District, and to the North East of England.

Penrith’s railway station is situated on the West Coast main line between London and Glasgow and operates as one of only two stops serving the Lake District on this line.  London is accessible in around three hours, whilst Glasgow is a ninety minute journey. 

New Squares is located on the south side of Penrith town centre, just off Bridge Lane and is anchored by a new Sainsbury’s store. The centre provides the most extensive and convenient shopper car parking in Penrith with a total of 691 spaces.

New Squares creates a vibrant and attractive link from the new Sainsbury’s and the car park to Penrith’s historic town centre via the adjoining Angel Squares centre.
