Visited Keswick during the recent wet weather and went to Tourist Information at Moot Hall to get information about surrounding area walks. Staff was very helpful in picking out a suitable walk which turned out to be perfect.

Worth a visit. Full of excellent local information and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Good advice about weather up on the fells and they can suggest alternative activities if the weather doesn't suit your chosen activity on the day.
