Shopping in Keswick, The Lake District
When you are looking for a little retail therapy you will find a tempting array of shops in the towns of Keswick and Cockermouth as well as in surrounding villages such as Caldbeck and a little further afield in Grasmere and Ambleside. Many of the smallest villages have well stocked general stores for all your day to day needs. Shopping in Keswick and the Northern Lake District is a very enjoyable pastime - the compact streets are ideal for browsing and make a pleasant change from the larger towns and cities. You will be sure to find everything you need from your daily requirements to that elusive special gift to take home.
There are many independent and individual shops offering antiques, books, paintings and pottery, jewellery, speciality foods and local produce as well as clothes, gifts, and traditional toys. We even have a choice of small supermarkets in Keswick and Cockermouth.
The choice of outdoor clothing and equipment retailers in Keswick is second to none earning it the title of Outdoor Retailer of the UK if not Europe!
For those who enjoy browsing round markets a traditional weekly market is held in Keswick on Saturday and in addition a local produce and craft market specialising in Made in Cumbria products takes place on most Thursdays of the year.
