Discover Carlisle

Carlisle has been a significant place since well before Roman times and is currently the largest city in England by area with a population of over 100,000. The city is at the northern extreme of the North West of England only 10 miles from the border with Scotland and is the urban capital of the county of Cumbria. Carlisle dominates a huge area of geography with our nearest city neighbours being Newcastle 58 miles to the East, Glasgow 96 miles to the North, Lancaster 68 miles to the South with the Irish Sea to the West.

If it's fun you want from extreme sports to quality time with the family, we have the places to play, the attractions to visit and plenty of quality and quirky dining and drinking experiences.

We're surprisingly easy to get to and the perfect centre to explore further afield, with the Lake District right on our door step.
