Keswick Live Advent

Keswick Live Advent gets underway today (1st December).  Now in its 5th year, it gives the run-up to Christmas a bit of extra sparkle and magic.  We have a great selection of pop-up events again this year including events for children, foodies, music lovers and even the fashion conscious. 

If you are in Keswick between now and Christmas Eve, we would love for you to come along and support the businesses taking part by attending their events and/or the window lighting.  Plus don't forget, once all of the windows are lit they form a magical town trail and we will be asking you to vote for your favourite.

The Live Advent Calendar and the town trail map can be found on the visitkeswick website or you can pick one up from the Keswick Tourist Information Centre and any of the businesses that are involved.

Beauty and the Beast at Theatre by the Lake

Theatre by the Lakes Christmas production, Beauty and the Beast is currently delighting audiences in Keswick.  The classic fairy tale is brought thrillingly to life in a stage adaptation by playwright Laurence Boswell.  With a magic castle, songs, a dancing horse and much, much more it is definitely not to be missed.

The show is running until 12th January.

Walk Of The Month - Calfclose Bay

This walk short 3.5 mile circular route is a great introduction to the area just beyond the town taking you through the woods as far as Calfclose Bay, back along Derwentwater lakeshore and through Hope Park. It is suitable for all seasons and is perfect for stretching your legs and blowing away the cobwebs on a winters day.

Explore Keswick on Derwentwater

Each month we tell you about a valley or village close to Keswick that you can explore but this month we thought it would be nice to remind you to explore the town of Keswick itself.  There is so much to see and do in the town including wonderful shops and galleries, beautiful parks, attractions and entertainment and a host of places to eat.

Book direct With Local Businesses Who Know The Area Best

Did you know that by booking via or direct with the accommodation provider you are supporting the local economy?

The larger booking websites, more often than not, charge businesses a commission, often as much as 15%.  So by booking via (we don't charge any commission) or by booking direct, 100% of what you pay is going back into the local economy.
