What to see in Keswick?

Keswick has won visitor awards for its tourist experiences, and you'll certainly be spoilt for choice in the busy town and its surrounding nature lover's paradise. Visit Derwent Water Marina or the Newlands Adventure Centre for watersports and sailing. Pass some time in the quirky Pencil Museum before enjoying lunch at one of the many excellent cafes, restaurants or gastropubs in Keswick town centre. Food is a big theme in this part of the world and you'll find plenty of independent eateries offering local and seasonal food, plus organic and vegan fare alongside the more traditional roast dinners.

Explore the cobbled streets and take in breathtaking views of the rolling hills as you explore the many public pathways around Keswick itself. If you love to be active, there are walks, cycle routes, horse riding routes and outdoor sports such as rock climbing, scrambling, paragliding or caving to enjoy - with instruction and equipment included, if required.  For culture, head to Wordsworth House and Gardens, or tour the Lakes Distillery with a drink or two to follow. There's the Theatre by The Lake for a live show on a warm evening, an independent cinema with a varied lineup of international and indie films, and various local activity providers offering everything from zip wiring and bouldering through to mine tours and high ropes courses. Fancy something a little more low key? Look out for local cookery workshops and fine dining, wine tasting or live literature readings. This town may be small but it has a very lively and active community, a welcome attitude towards tourists and a heavily creative spirit displayed through the large number of cultural and arts-related events that take place every year, from food festivals to summer outdoor opera shows. Be prepared for a busy break when you visit Keswick, especially in the summer.
