About Keswick

Resting on the shores of sparkling Derwentwater, Keswick is one of the Lake District’s favourite market towns, a hubbub of hikers, shoppers and those who simply love a good cream tea.

Whatever type of adventure you’re looking for, you’ll find it here. Want to experience Derwentwater? You can cruise its idyllic waters, hire a sailboat, a canoe or even enjoy wild swimming in the shallows.

If you’d prefer to venture into the surrounding mountains and woodlands, you can hike superstar sights like Grizedale Pike, Castlerigg and Catbells. Each offers awe-inspiring vistas. Thrill seekers can push their limits too, with river rafting, treetop climbs, abseiling and canyoning.

If that all sounds a bit much, don’t worry! Keswick has plenty of easy-going attractions. There’s the eccentric Keswick Pencil Museum, the delightful Theatre by the Lake and the Keswick Brewing Company – where you can leisurely sup specialist beers and craft ales.
