If you have limited mobility it can sometimes be difficult to have a day out. This itinerary gets you out into the fells and is designed for someone who can walk a short way and go up or down a couple of steps with help to get on or off things. However some of the locations discribed also have full wheelchair access.
From Easter to October the Honister Rambler bus loops from Keswick, down Borrowdale, over Honister Pass, Through Buttermere and Whinlatter. For the price of a bus fare (currently £2 until the end of June 2023) you can enjoy a tour of some of the most beautiful valleys in the Lake District. And why not get off at Honister to visit the cafe, or Buttermere to soak in the views by the lake.
Once you're back in Keswick you'll probably be hungry so pop to Cafe HNW in Upper Fitz Park. With disabled access, this cafe has drinks and snacks and is famous for their delicious churros.
Then how about a tour of the lake on the Keswick Launch. These have been cruising the lake for over 85 years and are a great way to enjoy Derwentwater. Pier One can be accessed by a wheelchair but you would need to be able to descend the four steps into the launch itself.
Conveniently the Launch starts and finishes right by Theatre by the Lake. The theatre is easily accessed for wheelchairs at multiple points and they also have numerous performances adapted for people with a variety of needs.
Keswick Alhambra Cinema also has disabled, wheelchair friendly, access to both its screens and has hearing loops and captioned performances.
