Went on here to find out about the bus times as we had no car we wanted to use the buses to have a view of the local area the lady in here seem to know an awful lot about the buses and she explained the two buses 77 and a 555 well one of the better passes to see the lakes so we used the 555 to go down to Windermere first thing in the morning spend the day there and then catch the 599. (Bus crew all very informative too) Day ticket all travel £11.50. The tourist information centre is in the centre of town it has a small shop attached to it we were very impressed by the ladies knowledge would recommend

Right in the middle of town this building used to be a prison. Some very detailed books here and well worth a look in. Staff are very knowledgeable.

Do not come honestly it is practically closed. You cannot get in and it's freezing . Wandering from pub to pub wished I had booked 2 nights and not 3. Keep your money and stay at home

We called in here this morning looking for advice re accommodation tonight In Keswick.
Greeted by a very rude efficious woman!
Most unhelpful but it wasn’t what she said just the way she spoke to us: very rude, loud and quite patronising!!!!
I think she is in the wrong job!
I am very positive person and am not usually bothered by people’s negative attitudes but there was no need for this woman to be so rude!
Unfortunately I did not get her name.
If she sees this maybe she will reflect on how she comes across to the general public!

A very good place to obtain local information

We've visited lots of Information Centre's over the years but the Centre at Keswick is one of the best. There's an excellent shop area downstairs with lots of local gifts and a very good range of leaflets upstairs. The staff are excellent in providing authoritative advice

The people who work at the information centre are as knowledgeable and helpful as you'd hope for. They will go above and beyond if needed.

We love the town centre of Keswick. The market days are the best. There lots of shops, bars, restaurants, gift shops and clothes shops. Lots to choose from. It’s even nicer when they have the Christmas lights up. Well worth a visit.

Non-patronising, helpful advice for newbie walkers!!
Oct 2019
As two semi-clueless Londoners new to The Lakes, we really appreciated the advice from Jim in getting set up for a walk, taking into account the time we had available and the then-weather conditions. They also have packs of walkers routes to buy, written up with verbal instructions (i.e. walk for 3/4 mile until you come across x, then turn left down y" etc), which was super helpful. We had gone that day with a vague plan of visiting Catbells as advised by friends, but were so glad we stopped in as Jim steered us elsewhere given the poor visibility, and we had a great walk with lovely views at Ashness Bridge/ the 'suprise' view.
