Carlisle has over 2000 years of history. Celts, Romans, feuding Border Reivers and invading armies have all left an intriguing legacy for you to explore. Our mighty medieval Castle, built in 1092 by William Rufus, has played an important role in the history of Carlisle for centuries. The castle is strategically located on the border between England and Scotland and has witnessed many attacks over its 900 year history.
Carlisle's imposing Cathedral occupies a central position in the heart of the ‘historic quarter'. Founded in 1122, the Cathedral has been rebuilt several times; once in 1292 after a devastating fire and again in the 14th century. The magnificent east window contains some fine 14th-century stained glass. There are also intricate wood carvings, medieval painted panels and the Brougham Triptych - a Flemish altarpiece dating from the 16th century.
Located right on the border between England and Scotland and just eight miles from Carlisle, Gretna Gateway is the ideal place to indulge in some retail therapy. Offering over 50 designer and high street favourites, with discounts up to 60% on RRP. Stores include Molton Brown, Skechers, Gap, Nike, M&S, Jeff Banks and The Perfume Shop.
