This is a historical building right in the centre of Keswick. Inside if the helpful tourist information centre offering everything you need to know about Keswick, its surrounding areas and the greater Lake District. From times of the boat launches on the lakes to information about activities, what there is and where to find it and bus timetables for getting... More

This quaint old building in the market place is the Tourist Information centre. There is of course, a lot of souvenir-type merchandise on sale, but no tacky stuff. The staff are very efficient and have a lot of local knowledge -"are the launches sailing, or is the lake too low?" "Yes they are sailing, and Low Brandelhow is closed" -... More

The Moot Hall is unmistakeable and provides a generic tourist information service with items for sale, books. leaflets, etc. A larger hall is located above for special exhibitions and events. Plenty of seating exists around the building and regular markets are held here. Some kind organisation has even paid for the installation of a drinking fountain - a rare provision... More

An original and unusual building in the centre of town and the base for the TIC - which is staffed by people who are extremely knowledgeable about the area and also pleasant, even when inundated with requests for advice, and very helpful. Always pop in and see what is happening in the area when we visit Keswick. A must to... More

Someone ought to turn this into a bistro or a cafe or a bar. It's landmark building and all it has in it is a Tourist Information. Which are probably on their way out these days thanks to the digital revolution. They could move the TI to the coun cil offices about 60 yards away and turn this little gem... More
