Welcome to Carlisle

Carlisle is a border city and the county town of Cumbria in North West England 10 miles south of the Scottish border. It is located at the confluence of the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril rivers.

Carlisle is rooted in the 2nd century as a Roman settlement tied to Hadrian’s Wall, the northernmost boundary of the Roman Empire.

That enormous defence is the largest Roman artefact in the world, and there are forts and long portions of the wall in touching distance of Carlisle.

This city was on the English-Scottish borders and in Medieval times changed hands repeatedly.
