Enjoy A Summer Holiday This August In Keswick, The Lake District

July was a scorcher here in Keswick and whilst we are now getting the odd shower of much needed rain, it is still warm with plenty of sun.  If you do get caught in a shower there are lots of indoor attractions and pastimes to keep you occupied before heading back into the great outdoors.  Even if you haven't booked yet, there is still all kinds of accommodation available. So pack your bags and visit Keswick this August.

What's On In Keswick

Friends Of Keswick Loyalty Scheme

Throughout the summer, you can participate in the Friends of Keswick loyalty card scheme as a way of supporting local businesses and giving back to the local economy. You can get your card stamped at a range of businesses around the town following a purchase.  Participating businesses will be displaying the Friends of Keswick logo in their window. Once you have collected 10 stamps you can claim your free "I'm a Friend of Keswick" badge and will be entered in a free prize draw.  Collect your loyalty card from Keswick Tourism Association offices (50 Main St.) or any participating business.

The scheme will run throughout the summer holidays until Sunday 2nd September.


Keswick Agricultural Show

Keswick Agricultural Show takes place on August Bank Holiday Monday (27th) and is a great day out for all of the family.

Enjoy seeing ponies, horses, sheep, dogs & poultry.  Pay a visit to the industrial marquee for home produce along with handicrafts and horticulture.  Other attractions include Cumberland & Westmorland wrestling, children’s amusements, vintage display by the West Cumbria Vintage Club plus 60+ trade stands.
