Come Back to Keswick, We've Missed You

We’ve been so looking forward to having you back! We know that lots of you have been itching to visit Keswick - thank you for holding off, keeping yourselves and our residents safer as a result.

With shops, restaurants, cafes, accommodation and other hospitality businesses now given the green light, our local business owners are excited to open their doors to you.

Whilst we'll be delighted to see you again, we do have a request; please be caring towards our town and the environment when you visit. Keep an appropriate social distance from others, wash your hands or use hand sanitiser regularly and pay attention to the regulations of individual establishments.

We've taken the opportunity to speak to some of the wonderful business owners in Keswick and ask them about their new COVID-19 regulations, their apprehensions, and what they're most looking forward to. Have a look through our blog to see what they said.

Adjusting To A New Normal

We've been busy updating our website with all the information about businesses in Keswick and how and when they are re-opening to help you plan every aspect of your trip. We'll be regularly updating this page as things continue to evolve over time.

We're Good To Go

You'll see on our website many of our businesses are now displaying the "We’re Good To Go” logo. This is the official UK mark to signal that a tourism and hospitality business has worked hard to follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines and has a process in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing. 

Book Direct

We were delighted with the government announcement that holidays will be permitted from the 4th July. With accommodation providers having being closed for so long this year  it is even more important than usual for us to ask you to book direct with our local businesses. 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 20%. 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. Click here to book now.
