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.

  • Full of interesting illusions. Some familiar, some even disturbing. Shop attached with puzzles and games. 
  • Really fun place with lots of interesting things to play with. Great for a rainy afternoon in Keswick. 
  • Fab place to spend an hour or two on a wet day in the Lake District! Very entertaining and interesting and some of the illusions have to be seen to be believed. The kids loved it, and the shop where there are more puzzles to try and any number of items to purchase.
  • A fun place to visit with or without kids, a surprising amount of exhibits in the space and lots of things to interact with. There are also some good illusion photo opportunities. It's not pushchair/wheelchair friendly though. It's on the second floor up a flight of stairs with no lift. We had to carry our buggy up the stairs, but other than that inconvenience it was spacious enough to actually use the buggy once we'd got it up there.
  • Really entertaining. Have been twice. Kids really loved it
  • Fun to visit and killed time on a rainy day. Some of the attractions were out of order but for the most part it was great.
  • Great display of interactive optical illusions.
