Derwentwater Launch

• The centrally located Moot Hall with its unusual one-handed clock is the perfect starting point to collect a map and start browsing the streets and alleys of this ancient market town. 

• Be ‘drawn’ to Keswick’s Pencil Museum and give free rein to your creativity.  Admire the world’s biggest pencil and marvel at the intricate secret pen used during World War Two.

• Entertain the kids for hours in the world of illusion at the Puzzling Place. 

• For more oddities, check out Keswick Museum – a Victorian ‘cabinet of curiosities’.  Play a ‘tune’ on the musical stones, admire the intricate detail of Flintoft’s model of the Lake District, or seek out the curious 500-year-old mummified cat.

• To finish the day, head towards Crow Park and the lake shore. Adventurous souls can take a rowing boat out on Derwentwater or sit back and enjoy a gentle scenic cruise on the lake with Keswick Launches.  Numerous jetties around Derwentwater allow you to disembark at various points and walk back along the lake shore.
