The Grand Keswick Station

The Keswick Hotel is located only minutes away from the town centre of Keswick and is probably one of the grandest buildings in the town.

The Keswick Hotel was built adjacent to the Keswick Railway Station offering the perfect lodgings on the stations doorstep for those who had travelled to this part of The Lake District by train.

When Queen Victoria stayed at the hotel a covered walkway was erected to link the hotel and the station until 1972 when the Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith Railway Line closed. The station was renovated to provide additional hotel accommodation in 1996.

The railway line is now a public bridle way and regularly used by walkers as a starting point for walking out of Keswick.

Below you will find pictures of the station house before it was used as part of the hotel:
