Ten Lakes Spectacular Tour of the Lake District from Keswick

25 reviews
Loved for its beguiling lakes and mist-shrouded fells, the English Lake District attracts fans from around the world. Yet knowing where to go and how to travel around the rugged region can be tricky for first-time visitors. This day trip from Keswick works to an itinerary that combines all the Lake District highlights with convenient transport through the day. You’ll cruise on Ullswater, visit the centuries-old Castlerigg Stone Circle, and discover the beauty of Borrowdale Valley, Buttermere, Grasmere, and more.

I was blown away when we visited this place. Very magical. We happened to arrive the day before a summer solstice and there were people here in tents from all over the world here to take part in some festivity of something? Got some excellent photos. Every moment the clouds and tone of the place changes and the photos taken even an hour later can be very much different in mood than at other times in the same day. I was so impressed and visited the place again before we left Cumbria. Very memorable.

It's definitely worth the effort to get to Castlerigg as it has such an amazing atmosphere. It's a wonderful place enhanced by the amazing views. Car parking is limited and just on the side of the road. Free entry. On nice days there is usually an ice cream van by the entrance. You need stout shoes and good weather protection as it is right on the top of a hill

We walked to the stones from Keswick on a trail rather than by the road. Had to climb a steep stile to enter the field with the stone circle and was surprised to find quite a few people there who’d driven. It was the winter solstice so there were probably more people thuan normal but this was the busiest attraction we visited.

Up on the hills above Keswick stand the stone boulders of Castlerigg Stone Circle, located on a plateau from which you can see several high peaks including Skiddaw and Grasmoor. The stone circle, still mystical though highly eroded, dates from around 3200 BC, making it one of the oldest in Britain. We were there on one of those moody cloudy autumn afternoons where the atmosphere and the scenery was stunning. Definitely worth a visit, especially as admission is free, but the paths may be muddy in the rain. We also visited Keswick itself - a pleasant market town dating from the 13th century, popular with artists and writers. Current buildings of note include the Moot Hall of 1813, St John's Church dating from 1838 and the George Hotel, dating from the 16th century. It was quieter than Ambleside or Windermere, which made it more enjoyable.
