The Puzzling Place (Keswick) Reviews
Description:Museum Square, Keswick.
Newest Review: ... in line with the theme of the place the gift shop sells an array of puzzles, Jigsaws, mind benders and gadgets. There is also a puzzle area, which consists of a large wooden table running around one corner of the shop which had various puzzles displayed on them. Visiters are encouraged to have a go of them (again free of charge). We had great fun trying to complete the puzzles, but most of ... more
