“Welcome to AK Keswick! Fancy a cuppa? Feel free to take a look around the store, take out a demo bike, sit in a tent, read a magazine, or just have a natter – it’s always good to hear what you’ve been up to. With the Lakeland mountains just out the front door and Derwent just down the road, you couldn’t really ask for a better basecamp than this!"
Abby, Keswick Store Manager
To ensure the safety of all our staff and customers, we're implementing new measures across our stores:
Our base in the North Lake District, we stock the entire Alpkit product range inside, from the teeniest Kraku stove to our fully featured Definition waterproof: you can jump around on the bouldering pads, try on a wetsuit, fit our bikepacking luggage on your bike or snuggle up in a expedition sleeping bag.
Give your retired gear a second life by donating it to our Continuum project to be adopted by someone who really needs it.
Treat your bike to an appointment with Joe our Sonder bike mechanic.
Head upstairs and you’ll find yourself in Hathersage’s finest indoor campsite where you can try out our tents for size.
We're constantly looking for an excuse to get out and about in the Lake District! You too huh? We run courses, events and lectures throughout the year to fulfil our cravings for adventure and inspiration, and meet a few new people whilst we're at it. If that sounds like it might be your jam, drop us a line by phone or email for more information or bookings.
