North Lake District (Keswick and Whinlatter Forest)
Keswick is a pretty market town in North Cumbria with lots to do whether it be a boat ride on the Derwent Water or exploring the town’s many shops and museums. Saturday is also market day! Keswick is also a perfect base for a day’s walking in the countryside. One particular beautiful walk is that to Castlerigg Stone Circle just outside Keswick! Today, you have the option of also going to Whinlatter Forest Park... England’s only true mountain forest park! An excellent trip for those who enjoy beautiful countryside scenery!
