Planned a trip to here as a short walk and it's so worth it. On a nice day it's right up there with any location you could imagine. Please do visit. Our ancient ancestors had immaculate taste.

We were here on a cold, moody February day, with dramatic skies that enhanced the feeling of ancient history and the breathtaking location. A place infused with a sense of the mystical and magical. Try and go out of season.

This is a small stone circle but impressive because of the 360 degree views of all the major hills around Keswick. Worth a detour

We were lucky to have great weather during our stay at the nearby Castlerigg Farm Camping and Caravan Site which is a 20 min walk away. I was up early and enjoyed a fantastic sunrise, unfortunately I wasn't alone as others had the same idea,...More

Really enjoyed watching the shadows get longer at the stone circle at sunset. If you have kids, be aware that the serious photographers get frustrated if you interrupt their set up view of the stones. Wear walking boots as it gets very boggy in the...More

Yes you can. There is a very easy route from Keswick. The footpath map is available from the Tourist Information office.

Hi and the walk from Keswick to Castlerigg is up quite a steep hill so it may be more relaxing for you to take public transport or your own car to the monument. It is possible to park on the side of the road quite close to... More
