- 24hrs in Carlisle, what to do
Tullie House and Castle will take up a full afternoon and is enjoyable. Catch the bus out to Lanercost priory and wander around – nice cafe there. Carlisle-Settle railway and get off some where for a walk. Hire a car and head into North Lakes or up to Hadrian’s wall.Posted 3 years ago
24 hours in Carlisle? As others have said, leave. 🙂
Seriously though, Foxes Cafe on Abbey St is a good place to start.
Foxborough restaurant is amazing if you like BBQ, Quarter Lounge is also good if you just want a burger.
Other than that it totally depends on what you’re into. Personally I wouldn’t go to Tullie House, even though my kids love it. Bitts Park is nice for a wander from the centre, and the Eden Valley is also lovely, but you need transport to get there.
What brings you this way anyway?Posted 3 years agoCapt. KronosMember
Actually… I quite liked Tullie House last time I went. It’s going back quite a few years though! My boys are getting towards the age they may enjoy it though. The Castle, likewise… seem to recall the Cathedral was pretty interesting too.
This may not be the case for everyone mind… I was an archaeologist at one stage 😉Posted 3 years agohonkiebikedudeMember
Having visited larger towns and cities around Britain Carlisle doesn’t seem so bad really . What are your interests and maybe people could advise a little more to your tastes .
I’m sure it’s lovely really, but my only experience of the town was seeing two separate fights between pissed-up idiots walking five minutes from the train station to my hotel.
I’m pretty sure this happens everywhere when idiots are allowed to consume alcohol unfortunately .Posted 3 years ago
