Keswick Continued

The mountains and fells around Keswick are a hiker's haven, but there are countless easier trails for walkers who prefer their days to be less strenuous. You won't tire of looking at the scenery, which can change with both the weather and the time of day. Climb a mountain, cruise the lakes, or simply sit peacefully and drink it all in from a comfortable bench – the choice is yours.

Keswick is packed with attractions for people of all ages and interests, including museums, shops, restaurants, and activity centres. The breathtaking landscape of this part of the world inspired many literary greats, including Walpole, Coleridge, and Wordsworth, and you can visit all of their houses, as well as numerous other historic venues and gardens. Cumbria is renowned for the quality of its food and real ales, and there is no better way to end a day's walking or sightseeing than with a delicious meal washed down with a pint at a friendly local pub.

The weather in the Lake District can be unpredictable and four seasons in one day is not unusual, but this is never a problem because there are so many things to do in Keswick and the surrounding area whatever the weather. You can have exactly the holiday you want, whether it's non-stop action and adventure, romance, or family fun.
