Welcome to Keswick

Keswick is a market town in northwest England s Lake District National Park, surrounded by mountains like Skiddaw.  In town, The Cumberland Pencil Museum documents the history of pencils, and the Keswick Museum & Art Gallery displays local artefacts.

Portinscale is an ideal base for a walking holiday.  On the doorstep are the starting points for the very popular walks up Catbells, Causey Pike and the Coledale Horseshoe as well as the Newlands Round. A short walk from Portinscale takes you to the landing stage at Nichol End from where you can join the Keswick launch.

You can enjoy a leisurely cruise around the lake or plan a walk combined with a boat trip.
