Getting Here

Derwentwater is in the northern Lake District, close to the town of Keswick, and it’s easy to reach on foot, by car or public transport.

 

By car
From the A66, head towards Keswick and follow the signs to Borrowdale. Eventually you will see signs to Theatre by the Lake and Lakeside. Turn off the main road and follow signs for the Lakeside car park, which is the nearest parking area. This is a pay and display car park and the lake is a short walk past Theatre by the Lake. Use the postcode CA12 5DJ if you have a SatNav.

On foot from Keswick
From the market place, head along Lake Road following signs for the Lake. Pass through a pedestrian subway and follow the path past the information panel and café, alongside Hope Park and Theatre by the Lake and down to the Foreshore.

By public transport
You can easily reach Keswick by bus from Penrith and Cockermouth. From the Keswick bus station, follow signs to the lake referring to the town information panels to help you. Pass through a pedestrian subway and follow the path past the information panel and café, alongside Hope Park and Theatre by the Lake and down to the Foreshore.
