Lanercost Priory

A medieval priory which was home to Augustinian Order. Raided by the Scottish Army, and then eventually dissolved by Henry VIII in 1538.

Carlisle Castle

Today the castle is in the safe hands of English Heritage and, given its turbulent history over the centuries, is remarkably well preserved. Explore the dungeons where the famous ‘licking stones’ can be seen, visit the keep with its model of Jacobean Carlisle, browse through displays of military weapons, medals and uniforms at the King’s Own Royal Border Regiment Museum or wander at will among stone-lined passageways and rooms.

Tullie House

The Roman Frontier Gallery opened on Saturday 25th June 2011 and is already receiving national and international interest. It promotes the western end of Hadrian’s Wall and describes Carlisle’s 400 years of Roman occupation. We are delighted to have a range of objects on loan from the British Museum.

Talkin Tarn

There is a 65 acre lake set amid 120 acres of farmland and woodland. The tarn is an ideal place for active recreation or a quiet stroll through the mature woodlands. The tarn is glacial in origin, being formed about 10000 years ago, and is fed by underground streams. You can sail, windsurf, canoe or hire one of the wooden rowing boats. Fishing is available at the Tarn.
