CITY OF THE LAKES
CARLISLE & HADRIAN'S WALL
Let us welcome you to Cumbria's only city perfectly positioned between the border of Scotland and the Lake District.
A unique combination of over 2,000 years of history blends with independent shops, pavement cafes, vibrant eateries and a lively Cumbrian spirit.
Delve into Roman Carlisle by beginning your historical adventure at Hadrian's Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take in the award winning Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery, or continue your adventure to the Cathedral and formidable 9th Century fortress of Carlisle Castle that watches over the city.
Discover hidden attractions off the beaten track while meandering through the cobbled town centre. Keep entertained with everything from top quality golf courses, a day at the races, or take in a show at The Sands Centre, whilst enjoying the many quirky bars and restaurants the city has to offer.
Talkin Tarn & The
Fancy some fresh air? Escape the city and take in Talkin Tarn Country Park, a 65 acre Lake set in 120 acres of farmland and woodland.
Head South and you will find the second UNESCO World Heritage site in Cumbria; the Lake District, with 16 Lakes and 150 peaks. Take on an adventure or explore the quaint villages and rural independent shops.
