Plan a Great Day Out

Nearby Brougham Castle was once a formidable barrier against Scots invaders and a prestigious residence of the powerful Clifford family. Today the remains of the castle are picturesquely sited by the River Eamont. There is a shop selling gifts, drinks and snacks.

Brougham, along with Countess Pillar, Mayburgh Henge and King Arthur's Round Table, can all be visited on a walk devised by the Eden Rivers Trust.
