Carlisle, whose origins date back to the Celts, the first people who established in the area, not far from the notorious Wall, was a roman settlement!
Hadrian’s Wall was, in fact, used by the Romans to defend that part of the Empire.
It has been what it still is since the end of the 19 th century: an important commercial and trading hub in the estreme north west side of England, protected by its castle, now a military museum, for nearly ten centuries!
Many are the opportunities to practice several open air activities: walking, cycling, fishing, pony trekking, not to forget water sports and much more!
Carlisle, once a roman fortress, is one of the most antique and historically rich towns throughout the United Kingdom.
All around Carlisle is such a varied landscape with typical villages, never ending highlands, rivers & lakes, sites of historical and cultural interest, museums & art galleries, castles & churches, thriving cities and stunning architectures.
Wherever you go so impressive the sight is!
Carlisle is nice, lively and charming with lots of boutiques, and specialized shops, a sort of Paradise for shoppers, with such a great choice of restaurants, bistrots & pubs, with lovely cafés, stunning museums and what a Cathedral!
A wide choice of restaurants, pubs, fast food, and cafès is in the area, and shopping goers will enjoy themselves a lot as several are the specialized shops, boutiques and outlets to be seen while nosing around.
Temperatures in Carlisle vary from 2°C up to 20°C

Overall Guide : I lived in carlisle for a year. I never seen a flood yet. There is a train station where you can look at trains, there is a small airport/museum with old planes and helis you can go inside. The new... more settlements are amazing, there is a huge victorian chimney near the city center. You should visit carlisle once.
