Carlisle is the perfect springboard for our tour and is a very pleasant city indeed. Never visited? You might be surprised. It boasts historic city walls, a huge castle, a pedestrianised and open centre, as well as a Cathedral. Our hotel is perfectly placed, right outside Citadel Station.
We have given you little chance to enjoy the delights of Carlisle so far and so this morning you can. Luggage to storage and then time enough for a visit to the regimental museum housed in the Castle. On your wander back to the hotel you may like to pop into the Cathedral, or simply wander the streets, before collecting belongings and boarding a homeward bound train.
“Fly as thick as driving rain, and ever again in the wink of an eye, painted stations whistle by.” – R L Stevenson.
