Traffic Information

As there are numerous attractions both in and around Carlisle that are easily accessible by road, having a rental vehicle with us gives you the flexibility to explore this historic and picturesque at your leisure rather than depending on public transport or having to keep taking taxis. Carlisle is well-connected by road, with the A689 heading past Carlisle Airport to the North East of England on the east side of the city and the A595 leading down to Workington from the western side of Carlisle. The A689 extends from the east side of Carlisle in an anti-clockwise direction around the north and west sides of the city in a ring-road shape, and connects up with the minor roads heading to the city's main attractions including Carlisle Castle. Once you have collected your vehicle from the convenient city centre location you are ready to explore the local area and take a pleasant drive to exciting attractions such as the Birdoswald Roman Fort, the longest continuous stretch of Hadrian's Wall that is visible today, which is just off the A69 Carlisle to Newcastle road.

Enjoy Carlisle's Important Heritage

Carlisle is England's largest city in terms of area, and the official capital of Cumbria. With an enviable position on the doorstep of the Lake District and Hadrian's wall, Carlisle is a vibrant modern city and the ideal gateway to more than 2000 years of human history. What makes Carlisle unique is its sense of heritage and tradition, which can be seen in many of its time-honoured events, such as the market proclamation which is read out in front of crowds each August.

Sightseeing Destinations

Rickerby Park was opened in 1932 as a memorial to the fallen of the First World War from 1914-1918. This natural park follows the snaking River Eden from Eden Bridge and is scatted with mature trees, grazing sheep and cattle and pasture fields. As a path follows the twists and turns of the River Eden and crosses Memorial Bridge, you can enjoy a bracing circular walk around the river and back to the city centre.

Carlisle Castle stands tall in the city it has commanded for nine centuries and remained a functioning fortress until recent living memory. Having withstood numerous sieges, housed a valuable royal prisoner and acted as home to the King's Own Royal Border Regiment, the castle has a fascinating and turbulent heritage that is played out in live demonstrations, family-friendly interactive exhibits and interesting displays to read and take in at your own pace.
