About Keswick

Keswick, a small market town in the Northern Lake District is encircled by the grandeur of the high fells and lies at the shore of picturesque Derwentwater, at the foot of the scenic Borrowdale Valley.

It is an ideal location not only for all season/all weather walking, climbing, sailing, mountain biking, fell running and cycling but also provides a wealth of low level paths and less arduous fells for those who want to take things easier.

There is a wide range of other interesting things to do and see in the area, including a variety of shops, a theatre, galleries and museums. Keswick and the local area has an extensive choice of good cafes, pubs and restaurants./lead]
