With its stunning scenery, unrivalled setting and its natural arena, Keswick is the perfect location for a Mountain Festival and an inspiring starting point for any adventurer!

The market town of Keswick offers an all round holiday destination experience, with a choice of accommodation for all tastes and budgets, from camping through to luxurious hotels and everything in between! There are also plenty of great traditional pubs, cafes, bars and restaurants along with a great choice of shops and galleries for those in need of some retail therapy at the end of an action packed day. For those seeking cultural activities, the renowned Theatre by the Lake provides the best drama in the Lakes whilst the Alhambra Cinema screens the latest blockbusters.

Keswick is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in Britain, with a spectacular array of mountains, valleys, lakes and tarns all within relatively easy reach and all just waiting to be explored. Close at hand are the four highest mountains in England - Scafell and Scafell Pike, Skiddaw and Helvellyn - each over 3,000 feet high and a challenge for even the most experienced fell walker.
