Keswick Events and What’s On 2016

A diary guide to what’s on, festivals, events and “things to do” in Keswick, the Lake District and surrounding area.

Keswick is a lively Town with many events and activities taking place on the Lake, on the Fells and in the Town itself . Below are listed some of the major festivals and organised events during the year but there are many other things to do. Keswick is “The Adventure Capital of Britain” and our links page will take you to some of the Outdoor Activity Providers who will organise “Tailor Made” activities to suit your requirements for an activity based holiday in Keswick and the Lake District.

We are more than happy to advise and help with activities during your stay in our B&B Guesthouse and have many leaflets, maps and brochures to help you plan your activities.
