Keswick retains the attractive appearance of a traditional small market town, the weekly stalls still set around the Moot market hall which dominates the town centre. The tourist information centre, a first port of call for visitors, is conveniently placed in this fine old listed building. Despite its small size, Keswick contains a variety of indoor and outdoor attractions far wider than you might expect. Three very individual museums, a highly successful theatre, the cinema and art and craft exhibitions are balanced, for the very active, by the leisure pool, indoor climbing centre and the sports hall.
Keswick is also special in having 2 large recreational parks within a few minutes walk of the town centre, adding to the town's reputation for well kept open spaces and floral displays. Close by is the lakeshore and the launch and boat landings, with a marvellous panorama of Derwentwater and the mountains opening up from here and the nearby Friars Crag.
Shopping, by necessity or for pleasure, has similarly relaxing quality; the individual and friendly attention is much welcomed by customers. After an invigorating day out, the local delicacies of Cumberland sausage, tattie hot pot, Borrowdale tea loaf, rum butter and plum bread are all names to tempt the taste buds into the many eating places, while the full range of accommodation in Keswick and the surrounding picturesque, peaceful villages will satisfy every need.
