We Look Forward To Welcoming You Back To Keswick

As some lockdown restrictions start to lift we are looking forward to some of our non-essential businesses re-opening on the 15th June. 

At the moment we are awaiting further information from the government as to when accommodation businesses can re-open. Currently, the government has said 4th July is the earliest date this could happen but no confirmation of this date has been given as yet. No overnight stays are currently permitted.

Day Visits to Keswick and the Lake District

Cumbria Police are reminding all visitors to the Lake District National Park who come on a day visit to respect the local communities and the environment - 
"Social distancing must be observed at all times, vehicles must be parked legally and considerately and visitors must take their rubbish away to be disposed of safely and responsibly."

Teams from the Lake District National Park Authority, the National Trust and Forestry England are patrolling car parks each day across the Lake District to provide a current status of how busy they are and information about toilets. Please avoid any that are marked as red.

You can help us create a safer Lake District for our communities and other visitors.

  • Go somewhere new, have a few ideas of different places to visit in case you arrive somewhere and it's busy.
  • Don't park anywhere outside a car park place, emergency vehicles may need to travel at speed down a road, and roadside parking creates problems for them. Don't park across a gate, our farmers are busy and need to get to their animals at all times.
  • Keep to social distancing. When you park at a car park, try to pay online if possible, or wait in your car until the pay machine is free. Maintain distance from other people.
  • Return home each evening.  Overnight stays are not permitted.  Don't risk a fine and make sure you return to your home each night.

Happy Holiday Memories

We asked you recently to post photos on our Visit Keswick facebook page of a holiday to Keswick and have been delighted that so many of you shared your happy memories with us. From visiting your favourite spots such as Castlehead Viewpoint, Castlerigg Stone Circle and Ashness Bridge to coming for the Mountain or Jazz Festival or just a weekend break or annual visit we have loved seeing them all. 

You can still share your photos with us and we will add them to our photo gallery.

Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path Update

We are pleased to be able to update you that the reconnection of the Keswick to Threlkeld Railway Path is progressing well and is on schedule to be completed by the end of this year. 

The 'big tunnel' has now been cleared out. The tunnel sees the light of day after 40 years of being buried during the construction of the Greta Bridge in the 1970s.

Dream Now, Visit Later

Although you may not be able to come and stay in Keswick at the moment we can send a little bit of Keswick to you. Half of the fun of a holiday is said to be in the planning so why not order a copy of our free Visit Keswick Guide at and enjoy researching a future visit.

We look forward to being able to welcome you back.
