Right On Our Doorstep...

The Lake District is one of the glories of Britain and Theatre by the Lake lies between Keswick, one of its most popular towns, and Derwenwater, one of its most beautiful lakes. Keswick has many comfortable hotels and guest houses and a visit to a performance at the theatre is the perfect end to a day spent touring, climbing fells, cruising lakes or visiting homes (both humble and stately).

Did you know about Lake District Pounds, the region's own local currency? They are worth the same as Sterling pounds, but only unique, local, independent businesses accept the LD£, so you know you're supporting our community while you spend.
It costs nothing to swap your cash for LD£ and if you keep a few LD£ notes as souvenirs (with exciting new designs to collect every year) your money goes straight towards local projects that care for our communities and preserve our precious landscapes.
