We say

If there’s a name in the Lakes that’s synonymous with outdoors stores, it’s George Fisher, the rather grand emporium in Keswick devoted to hiking maps, books, clothes, rucksacks, ski stuff, navigational aids and anything else you can think of that will ease your way (or even keep you alive) on the mountain. Trained staff can help you choose the right gear, and can even recommend a hike or two (there’s a weather forecast posted daily), and there’s a great café on the top floor too. Hikers’ heaven.

You say Average Rating ★★★★☆

A great outdoor store and cafe ★★★★☆

George Fisher is an amazing store for outdoor kit. It is not the cheapest but this outweighed by the knowledgeable and friendly staff. The store offers children's walking boot hire. At the top of the store is a café serving tasty lunches and afternoon teas with lovely Lake District views. We loved the views so much that we went on to rent the High Spy holiday flat next door for a week. Be warned though that the café can get very busy in the school holidays.
