Mini guide to Keswick

     

Set in the heart of the Lake District, Keswick is a picturesque town offering a wide range of attractions. Whether it's the spectacular valley and lake views, modern museums or perusing the infamous weekend markets, Keswick has something for everyone.

The lakes of Derwent Water are one of the town's foremost attractions, ideal for ambling walks and boats cruises. Keswick is also famed for its parks, and Hope Park is no exception. With magnificent landscaped grounds, it conveniently links the lakeside with the towns center. And make sure you don't miss the 4000-year-old Stone Circle on nearby Castlerigg hilltop, which overlooks Keswick.

For a small town, Keswick packs in plenty of attractions and activities. On the western side of town wander through the original settlement and admire the many fine old buildings and visit the town's first church, Crosthwaite. Closer to the center you can discover the Victorian Museum, detailing Keswick's surprising past, and visit the nearby Pencil museum to see the world's longest pencil!

Visitor's to Keswick won't be disappointed by the many pubs and cafes. Bryson's shop and tea room is famous for its local speciality, lakeland plum bread. In the evenings take a stroll down to the lakeside, sip a coffee, soak up the glorious panorama view and take in a show at the town's new Theatre.

Exploring the surrounding region of Keswick is particularly rewarding. Outdoor pursuits are plentiful in the region and all within easy reach of the town. Whether you are climbing the heights of Scafell Pike (977m) or ambling through the many woodland paths of Whinlatter Forest, there are spectacular views to be had of Northern Lakeland.
