We found the gallery while looking for things to do on a very wet day. This place is fantastic. It is full of all manner of lovely things. I'd checked all the shops in Keswick plus the Saturday market for a present for a friend and eventually at Thornthwaite was spoiled for choice. We didn't try the coffee or cakes... More

I visit Thornthwaite Galleries every time I'm in the area. It is packed full of arts and crafts goodies to suit all tastes and all pockets. There is also a café which sells cakes and coffee etc. Not sure if they do proper lunches - I expect so. The staff are friendly and helpful. Do please visit this gallery -... More

Big gallery, packed with arts and crafts and paintings from local artists. Refreshments on offer include home-made cakes, so take some time to stop a while here and browse. If you want a memento of your time in the Lake District, you'll probably find something here, and if you don't, you'll have enjoyed the experience.

Set in the lovely village of thornthwaite not far from Keswick, this is a great little place to spend an hour or so. Great gallery with pictures and pottery for sale and a nice little tea shop with good soft drinks and cakes. Highly recommended

Have visited these galleries many times over the years but however many times you have visited, it's always worth spending an hour or two here. There is a superb range of mainly local crafts including brilliant framed photographs, original art work, ceramics and wood items including some superbly crafted furniture. There is also a good range of cards. Prices range... More

Having visited the Galleries some years ago, we returned wondering if our good memories would be justified. No problem, a large range of locally-produced furniture, ceramics, glass, jewellery and paintings kept us occupied for most of a wet May morning. A small coffee shop complemented the excellent displays and we had amost enjoyable conversation with the sales lady (who like... More

We are regular visitors to this part of the Lakes. We always call in because the selection of art is very much to our liking. There is a great mix - from photographs to jewellery, ceramics to oils - literally something for everyone. The coffee is great - good size cups; the toasties and cakes fab. Always a real treat...
