Puzzling Place Ltd, Keswick

4.2
#1 of 6 in Museums in Keswick
Puzzling Place Ltd is exactly what its name suggests: a puzzling house of brain-twisting decor. Test your alacrity with the puzzles in the puzzle area at the top of the stairs and throughout the shop; both are free to enter. A small entrance fee will get you into the main attraction, the World of Illusion, which contains an "anti-gravity" room, a hologram gallery, and the "Eyelusions" exhibit. Be forewarned: The reality-bending exhibits might leave you reeling with laughter and dizziness.

    Good to do if you are in Keswick on a wet afternoon. Spent about 45 minutes inside and it was interesting and a bit different. Teenagers enjoyed working out the puzzles. Can get a bit overcrowded but ...  more »

  • A lovely attraction that's definitely worth a visit on a rainy day. £3.50 entry for an adult but you will be in for an hour so it is good value. Suitable for adults and children.
  • Fantastic selection of jigsaw puzzle and tabletop boardgame, though definately sold at a premium when compared to identical products online.
  • Interesting 'museum' with things that do indeed puzzle you! Cheap entry price and well worth a visit with friends.
  • Very interesting place. Great for people of all ages, and fun! Spent a good couple of hours here looking at everything
  • This is a good interesting place. Not very large and most the main exhibitions are on promo photos (these are good for kids of all ages). Plus many more pictures, illusions and interactive things in between. Worth an hour or two.

Where to stay in Keswick

Cottages and B&Bs are scattered over the valley, and many offer views of the surrounding mountains and countryside. The town center's Victorian edifices often hide guestrooms that overlook the charming streets. Consider a B&B or inn with views of the hills close to the town center and enjoy the best of both worlds.
