Things to do in Keswick for 5 years+

Quality Outdoor Activities for 5+

Keswick and Adventurous youngsters..

From Peter Rabbit to soft play, the Lake District national park has many family friendly options both indoor and outdoor to keep the smaller ones happy, and there is a great adventure playground in Fitz Park, which will burn off some excess energy! There is even a Pencil Museum...?!

For those who are feeling a little more adventurous, and want to the see some of the amazing outdoor activities that are available in the Lake District, we have the following activities that have been tried, tested and given the thumbs up by the smaller adventure seekers! For this age group, we would expect that an adult would be present too.

We are so lucky to be based in the stunning Lake District, which really is one giant adventure playground, and gives us the opportunity to run suitable outdoor activities for EVERYONE. The lists below are only a guide, as children all develop at different rates and have different experiences. If you really feel your child will be fine in a ‘higher’ age activity, just have a chat with us first.


We have specific kit for smaller thrill-seekers, so that they can enjoy the adventure without being swamped in oversize equipment.

AALA Licence

By law all activity providers who work with U18’s (without parental supervision) MUST hold an AALA licence. This involves regular inspections of both safety procedures, and activity delivery. There are various ‘loop hole’ exemptions, so do check that the provider has one! Our registration is R1929.
