Keswick has won awards in Britain in Bloom many times over the past few years; it obviously has a head start with such a superb location. The town offers a wide range of places to eat out and has an attractive shopping centre, of course the outdoor clothing industry is a speciality here! Our market day is Saturday but Farmers Markets are arranged during the week throughout the year with, among other things, the opportunity to buy local craft work, photographs and so on.

Keswick is one of the area's busiest and most vibrant towns. Whether you want to explore the lakes and fells, discover the history of the region, or just sit back and enjoy the wealth of art and culture that the Lake Distict has to offer, Keswick has something for everyone. 

The aspect of Keswick that arrests the attention of most visitors is its surroundings. The town is set on the shores of Lake Derwentwater, popular for sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and rowing. The most relaxing way to appreciate the stunning views is to have a trip on the Keswick Launch, which takes you on a 50 minute tour of this beautiful lake. For the more adventurous, the valley of Borrowdale is just a stone's throw away, and is a heaven for climbers and walkers.

When the weather is bad and you're forced inside, Keswick comes into its own. Boasting a brand-new Theatre By The Lake, offering an eclectic mix of drama, music, dance and film, the world-famous pencil museum, Keswick's own museum and art gallery and the tranquil Trotters World of Animals. Keswick provides history and culture for the whole family. Pubs, restaurants, swimming pool & leisure centre, cinema and two nightclubs are also on offer.

For visitors to the Lake District, it is the stunning scenery of mountains and lakes that is the centre of attention. Whether you want to stroll around the lakes and valleys or you're the more adventurous hiker type, Keswick is only a short drive away from Lakeland's most beautiful spots.
