Keswick

 

Map

Keswick is undoubtedly the main hub of activity for the Northern Lake District, offering visitors and locals everything from world class theatre to an unparalleled selection of outdoor activities. The town itself has a charm all of its own which will leave the visitor more than satisfied that they have had their expectations met.

Located between the northern end of Derwent Water and mighty fells of Skiddaw & Blencathra, the setting could not be more beautiful. The surrounding countryside has everything you could possibly ask for; high mountain passes, scenic rivers, lakes, picturesque dales with charming stone built villages and not forgetting the fells themselves. Notwithstanding all this, the chief jewel in Keswick’s crown is Derwent Water. Within easy walking distance of the town centre and by whatever standards you wish to compare, here you’ll find a beauty not easily equalled.
