Travelling around Carlisle
Carlisle is situated in Cumberland in the North West of England, where the rivers Eden, Caldew and Petteril meet. Just 10 miles from the Scottish border, this former Roman outpost is brimming with old-world charm.
With two areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one World Heritage Site, Carlisle is a sightseer’s dream, as you can walk in the footsteps of Roman warriors at Hadrian’s wall, explore the city’s medieval heart or take in some local culture at one of the many art galleries and museums.
Carlisle has excellent road and rail links. Arriva buses operate in the area, providing routes to nearby towns and villages, such as Corbridge and Hexham, as well as regular services to Newcastle upon Tyne.
