Top things to do in Cumbria & the Lakes
"Carlisle's brooding, rust-red castle lurks on the north side of the city. Founded around a Celtic and Roman stronghold, the castle's Norman keep was added in 1092 by William Rufus, and later refortified by Henry II, Edward I and Henry VIII (who added the supposedly cannon-proof towers). From the battlements, the stirring views stretch as far as the Scottish borders. The castle also houses Cumbria's Museum of Military Life, which has collections of military memorabilia associated with the region's regiments."

15 Best Things to Do in Carlisle (Cumbria, England
"There may not be a castle in England that has lived through as much carnage as Carlisle Castle. It was established by the Normans on top of a Roman fort during the reign of William II at the end of the 11th century. For the next 650 years there was near-constant conflict."

Mentioned by Lonely Planet Top Choices
Top things to do in Cumbria & the Lakes
"This old slate mine has been reinvented as a centre for all kinds of activities: you could venture underground into the bowels of the old 'Edge' and 'Kimberley' mines, tackle a via ferrata, or climb inside the mine along a system of fixed cables, tracing the route followed by the slate miners. A tour into the 'Cathedral' mine runs on Friday by request, but you'll need eight people and it costs £25 per person."

Mentioned by Culture Trip
Carlisle's 10 Best Restaurants: Top Cumbrian Eats
"has borrowed one of David Bowie’s names, and celebrates a certain raucous irreverence and artistic flair. The restaurant and bar take advantage of this cool historic building, with exposed brick walls, antique lighting, and plenty of character. Try something from the bar’s playful cocktail menu, like a rhubarb cosmo or a spiced pear mojito."
Mentioned by Lonely Planet
Best restaurants in Carlisle, England
"This place scores points for the name alone (at least for Bowie fans), although the Duke himself would have been most unlikely to tuck into the burgers, tandoori chicken and flat-iron steak on the menu."
