Now a Tourist information center the Moot (assembly building) is still at the heart of the town, and a local landmark. Inside the staff are friendly and extremely helpful... there are maps, guides and a selection of (not so tacky) souvenirs on sale. Any trip to the Lakes in the area should begin with a visit.

Moot Hall is not a large building but is has an interesting history and a prime central location in Keswick. Currently it is the Tourist Information Centre so definitely worth a visit and some research into its history.

Tourist information always busy and helpful and always loads of leaflets, info on places to visit, but we only went in on this trip to visit upstairs where they had a display of photographs of the Lakes at night time. What great pictures, and very friendly people talking about them. They had left the lights dimmed to enhance the mood... More

The Moot Hall is under scaffolding at the moment, but we popped in to the tourist information office, which has a wealth of leaflets and books. On the occasions that we visited, the staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

Around 3 dozen stalls .a mixture of local trades an general merchandise . Nice for a walk and picking up that little treat. Beautiful garden stall willing to provide growing tips for each plant sold , plus recommendations for particular types of soil and plant to look out for.
