£9.95
Keswick is just north of Lake Derwent Water and four miles from Bassenthwaite, in the Lake District National Park. In Tudor times the town was an important mining area and from the 18th century onwards it has become a thriving holiday centre. With its famous Moot Hall, Keswick is also home to the Theatre by the Lake, the Alhambra (one of Britain’s oldest surviving cinemas) and the Keswick Museum and Art Gallery. This quaint little Cumbrian town is associated with poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Robert Southey and, together with their fellow poet, William Wordsworth based at Grasmere, they made the scenic beauty of the area widely known.
