Walks, mountain weather, outdoor shops & more

Keswick and the Northern Lake District fells are renowned as a centre of excellence for walkers and hikers. From flat strolls along the old railway line, over the beautiful bridges and past the meandering River Derwent, to gruelling hikes over some of the toughest (and highest) fells in England, the area has walks for everyone and every walking ability.


By kind permission of walking guide Paul Buttle we have listed a few of his favourite walks; from easy treks (for the less experienced) to difficult and demanding day-long hikes (for experienced and adventurous walkers).


We also have a basic guide to cafes and tearooms whilst out on your walk and where to shop in Keswick for all your outdoor clothing and equipment.


There is a weather forecast and weathercams, showing live webcam views of Keswick and Borrowdale. Please be careful of the changing Lake District weather conditions. The weather on the fell tops can be very harsh compared to the valleys.
