Derwent Water Advice

Hi all ,

I will be visiting Derwent Water in the Lake District for the first time next week. I've never been before so was hoping some members on here might have some advice?
Is there anywhere to park a car for free around DW? Laybys? If not, best priced carpark?

I plan to capture sunrise and sunset on the same day, and most of the day will be spent walking around DW.

Any bits of advice or ant tips would be much appreciated.


ps. I will be Vlogging it on my channel too

Hi Andy,

Having just come back from a trip there a few weeks back I can recommend basing yourself in Keswick - you can get down to Derwent lakeside from the town and there are fantastic views of Catbells and the other surrounding hills.

A short walk from the Keswick piers is Friars Crag which again offers stunning views and leads down to the shoreline where some really classic images can be captured.

During my trip I reviewed the SNAPP guides app which offers a Lake district area guide - this has an interactive map which pinpoints many great viewpoints for images around Derwent water. Take a look at our review and see what you think Smile
