Carlisle

A border city, straddling the two great countries of England and Scotland. Carlisle is known for its fascinating local history, beginning as a Roman settlement created to house the soldiers needed for the forts at Hadrian’s Wall. During the middle ages, the area had a tumultuous history, serving as one of the last strongholds of England, wedged between the two warring states.

The city has developed through the ages and Carlisle is now known as a forward-looking, metropolitan city, known as ‘The Great Border City’, Carlisle is the cultural, historical and commercial centre of north Cumbria. The city centre has a vibrant nightlife, with a variety of bars, restaurants and clubs, the city is also known as Cumbria’s leading shopping spot, with the Lanes Shopping Centre, plus a variety of high-street stores all attracting shopaholics from across the country.

We love Carlisle because...

  • Fascinating local history
