A historic town

The medieval Carlisle Castle has overlooked the city for nine centuries, having gone from being a crucial Roman fortress to one of the region's most popular visitor attractions. You can tour the castle grounds and learn about its treasured history and the characters whom used to live there.

Elsewhere, Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery is within canon firing range of the castle walls and features everything from contemporary art exhibitions to Roman artefacts and a gallery focusing on the city's past.

And if you fancy a bit of airline nostalgia, head out to Solway Aviation Museum at Carlisle Airport and get up close to wartime aircrafts including Avro Vulcans and Jet Provosts. 

Visit Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District

Once you've visited the city's main attractions, hop into your car share and make the short journey to Hadrian's Wall – the famous Roman structure which stretches across northern England. Learn all about Roman heritage whilst enjoying a fine walk complete with some of the country's most breath-taking surroundings. 

Those with a soft spot for nature, or who simply love a winding old country road and some great pub grub, will no doubt want to head south into the Lake District National Park. Discover gorgeous villages, lakes and over 3,500 kilometres of 'free to roam' land. Get your hiking boots on!
