You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Skipton Building Society - Kendal

15 Market Pl, Kendal LA9 4TP, UK – 01539 724492

Local Chambers of Commerce for LA9 5PP. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Kendal Town Hall

Kendal LA9 4DL, UK – 01539 793102

Nice building with some great features. Generally only the toilet is open to the general public (unless you have a meeting or coffee morning or exercise class). The wooden wall around the door is due to the deteriorating sand stone from the walls and balcony.

Been inside this Town Hall and the woodwork is of old school and first class craftsmanship Well worth looking round. This is where Alfred Wainwright the famous walker held office has Treasurer. Did talk to someone who used to work in the Town Hall and she had no idea Alfred had a son.

Dental Surgeries

Kendal Dental Care

56 Stramongate, Kendal LA9 4BD, UK – 01539 720302

I feel that perhaps a *genuine* review from someone who's been a patient here since KDC took over might be in order. So, summed up - I moved to London 9 years ago. London has quite a few dentists, as you might imagine. I still make the journey back to KDC because they are friendly, professional, and excellent - and really top notch for things like fillings and injections, if you're not a fan of that element of dentistry. (Who is?!)

Oasis Dental Care Kendal

59A Stramongate, Kendal LA9 4BH, UK – 01539 737220

I have been to Oasis Dental Care surgery 3 times now and never fail to be impressed with the level of care, even having a wisdom tooth taken out was painless. The time the dentists and Hygienists spend explaining any treatment is good too. I give them 10/10 on all levels.

Sandes Avenue Dental Practice

5 Sandes Ave, Kendal LA9 4LL, UK – 01539 739911

My son had his teeth front knocked out when he was 9. They had started to go black and unsightly. He was fitted in quickly to have the bleaching. We were not expecting fantastic results as we were told they can vary but the results were beyond belief! With in the 1st couple of days my sons teeth were white! After the whole treatment we just can't believe how amazingly white his teeth look. We are thrilled.

Ive always been very nervous when it comes to going to the dentist but here i have found it much easier. The appointments never fun to far behind, reception staff are lovely and the dentists very re assuring and make me feel at ease as much as they can. They have been great with my 4yr old son aswell and are very patient with him. The reception staff have even watched my baby while i had treatment and i came down seeing him full of smiles playing with them. I wont be going anywhere else.

Lovely church close to the river. Beautiful inside. Had the pleasure of meeting the vicar and shown the interior and given a map of complete history of relevant chapels, main altar, organ, and many more. Highly recommend popping in if you are visiting Kendal.

I visited as a spiritual tourist, not attending a service. - Friendly welcome - Photographs allowed - Lots of history - Palpable Spirit of prayer in the church - Information in several languages My family and I were particularly moved when sitting in the North chapel beneath the impressive corona: this feels like the prayerful heart of the community.

British Raj

I love your food. I would have give you 5 stars but you don't deliver. You need delivery service guys x

Best Indian takeaway in Kendal by a long way. I've lived in Kendal since 1990 and during that time I've eaten food from most restaurants and takeaways and this is my favourite by a long way. The food is always tasty with generous spicing. Their naans are the best this side of Bradford and the daal is exceptional. The guys who cook here are more than willing and capable of adjusting the spicing to your liking. The menu is extensive and very well priced. They do get very busy so put the number in your phone and call 20-30 minutes in advance. Opens at 5.30pm 'til 11pm.

Nursery and Preschools

Brewery Pre-School

122A Highgate, Kendal LA9 4HE, UK – 01539 722833 x215

The Brewery Preschool is a small nursery with 2-3 educators and 6-10 kids attending daily. It was perfect for us as I felt my little one was not ready for a large pre-school and here he got a smooth transition and lots of 1:1 attention. We managed to settle without ANY tears! I love the variety of skills that children learn - the very first thing my little one (aged 2) brought back was a strawberry tart, one of the many they made that day. Besides cooking there is a lot of writing, letter recognition, counting, social skills and fun activities outside - bikes, slides, scooters, sand and water play Assessments every half a year are really helpful - I would not have known that we had to work on managing emotions, now it is a conscious effort for me as a mum. I also love the fact there is no telly at all but there is a lot of books reading going on!

The Brewery preschool is a very special place. Every child is cared for and respected as an individual. The teachers go out of their way to make sure not only the children are happy but so are the parents. The setting is small so the children get all the attention and education that they would receive from a childminder, but they also interact with more children of their own age. They feel safe, comfortable and happy there. I have seen both my two transform from babies into confident children and I can't thank the Brewery enough for this. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Thanks Lizz and Bronte for all your hard work it is appreciated!

Sunny Brow

Bankfield, Greenside, Kendal LA9 5DR, UK – 01539 729437

Love love love this nursery, my son didn't want to leave to go to school. The staff are amazing and the fact all food is home made on the premises is brilliant.

Our little Girl has been going to Sunny Brow Day Nursery since she was 18 months old and has just left now at 4 and a half to start school. Our experience has been excellent! She has really come out of her shell and developed many social skills that have set her in good stead for starting school. All the staff are very friendly and helpful and you can see that everyone from the owners through to management and the childcare staff have a real passion for what they do. The building is an old building but it is kept very clean & tidy and is wonderfully decorated on each floor with scenes that match the seasons and time of year. You can tell a lot of thought & effort goes into this. Overall we love Sunny Brow!!! Thank you all :-)

Heron Hill Primary School

Hayfell Ave, Kendal LA9 7JH, UK – 01539 721276

I am a parent of two children in years 3 & 6, both of whom have been at the school since attending the school nursery. As parents we have always been really happy with the school. Although a relatively large school, it has a real family, friendly and community feel. The staff are supportive and always available to discuss any worries we have had. Our daughter found starting school difficult, and the staff went out of their way to help her settle and thrive at school. Both our children are doing the SATS this year, and we have been impressed with how the school have helped and prepared them for the tests, so they are both comfortable and not worried at all. The school grounds are huge, and both our children really benefit from the outside spaces and extra curricular activities on offer. The school has a GOOD Ofsted rating, and we feel delivers just the right balance of nurture and challenge to our children, so they are happy to go, and keen to learn.

Excellent school for children. Good IT facilities in class
