Things to do and see when staying at The Inn

The countryside surrounding The Inn at Brough is absolutely steeped in history and abounds in historic towns and villages, ancient monuments and museums.
There are masses of attractions and activities for the visitor within a half-hour drive of The Inn, often on deserted roads. Brough is ideal as a centre for walking, cycling and driving through the beautiful Eden Valley and its surrounding hills and fells and is within easy reach of the North York Moors, the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the County Palatinate of Durham and Hadrian's Wall. The Eden Valley has a major advantage in not being crowded with tourists.
We have arranged the places to visit in order of distance from Brough. Rather than replicate other websites we offer a short introduction to each item and a link to their own website which you will find in the 'Contact' section.
The following website links are also always worth visiting when planning a holiday:

Approximately 22 miles from The Inn at Brough, Penrith Castle lies on the outskirts of the town opposite the railway station. Like the town itself it is made entirely of local red sandstone and has a long history. Begun in 1399 by William Strickland, later Bishop of Carlisle and then Archbishop of Canterbury as a defence against Scottish raids. The castle was improved and added to before becoming a royal fortress for Richard, Duke of Gloucester who subsequently became King Richard III in 1483. The ruins that remain date from about then.
