Enjoy Keswick!

This market town has so much to offer. You can explore the outdoors, go hiking, climbing, canoeing, ghyll scrambling or take days out at the spa, dining, shopping and relaxing in the many cafés - there is something for everyone. To make it easier for you to find some of these wonderful offers, we have produced this booklet which gives details about a variety of businesses and activities available.

 This website combines two ventures that were launched in 2018 – Enjoy Keswick and Friends of Keswick. This means that any business named on this Enjoy Keswick website will also accept the Friends of Keswick loyalty card. We are delighted that more businesses have signed up this year! New loyalty cards have also been produced for Friends of Keswick.

We hope that you enjoy your time in Keswick this summer!
