Spread the joy at the World’s Original Marmalade Festival

Penrith, Cumbria

Unleash your inner Paddington Bear on a visit to the World’s Original Marmalade Festival, which will be held on the historic Dalemain estate in Penrith.

If you’re a marmalade lover then a visit to Penrith this spring is a must! The Marmalade Festival will be held on Saturday 16 March at Dalemain Mansion & Historic Gardens, and over 2,000 homemade competition marmalades will be on display in the state rooms in all their glory. Browse the best artisan marmalades in the world, give them a taste and pick out one (or several!) to take home with you. Toasts at the ready!

Extend your trip with a stay and amble through the Lake District. Book a stay at nearby Sharrow Bay (recognised by Dalemain as one of the country's finest marmalade serving B&Bs), and wake up to stunning views across Ullswater before heading further into the Lake District.
