Arrive at the Kings Arms Hotel to the aroma of mulled wine and mince pies which will be served as you relax in the lounge bar.
In the evening join us for a pre-dinner glass of bubbly and canapés reception where you will be welcomed by our General Manager and his team, as he takes this opportunity to tell you about the coming days events and entertainment. Afterwards, make your way to the restaurant for a delicious five course Gala dinner.
After dinner, join us on a candlelit procession to the shores of lake Derwentwater. With a glass of Baileys hot chocolate in one hand and a sparkler in the other, enjoy Christmas stories from our Town Crier as you lose yourself in the beauty of the Lake District (weather permitting). As we return to Keswick’s Market Square, enjoy the Keswick Choir Christmas concert before joining us at the bar for a nightcap.
Christmas morning is a leisurely affair. Start your day with a traditional hearty Cumbrian breakfast and why not add bit of sparkle with a glass of Bucks Fizz?
Enjoy the morning at your leisure, whether you choose to relax at the hotel, or join in the festive fun by taking part in our Christmas treasure hunt around Keswick for the chance to win a prize.
After the Lakeland air has stimulated your appetite it will be time to indulge in a sumptuous five course Christmas Day lunch, followed by tea, coffee and Christmas cake.
In the evening, the bar is open for pre-dinner drinks before our fabulous ‘Taste of the Lakes and Fells’ buffet is served in the restaurant. With relaxation in mind, we have prepared a fun Christmas quiz and Christmas cake competition with prizes to be won, promising an entertaining evening.
A true Cumbrian breakfast will set you up for the day before stepping outside into the Market Square to enjoy a stirrup cup of Kings Arms hot punch with the Blencathra hunt and foxhounds - a town tradition. Afterwards, take time to relax or get the best bargains in the Boxing Day sales in the variety of lovely boutiques in Keswick!
We then suggest you wrap up warm and enjoy a scenic guided walk where you’ll be greeted with a splendid hot and cold picnic buffet. Depending on how many calories you wish to burn post-Christmas, this is followed by a choice of a leisurely or a more invigorating walk back to the hotel (suitable clothing and footwear advised).
Soon it will be time to enjoy a five course farewell dinner after which you are welcome to join the other residents and locals for a drink or two in the cosy bar.
