Keswick visitor centre

A free interactive visitor centre about Cumbria’s water environment

The reservoirs and rivers in the Lake District are often the focal point of the most picturesque views and stunning landscapes – acknowledged and appreciated throughout the world.

But did you know Cumbria’s reservoirs play a huge part in supplying drinking water to millions of people throughout the North West? And the rivers help support an array of amazing wildlife.

 If you’re in Keswick why not pop along to our free interactive visitor centre? You’ll find us at:

32 Lake Road, Keswick, CA12 5DQ

There are information displays about the history of Thirlmere reservoir, videos, a children’s activity area and our plans to construct over 100km of new pipes to help keep taps flowing in West Cumbria.

There’s also information about the work of West Cumbria Rivers Trust and in true Cumbrian style – dogs are welcome too!
