Carlisle Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


Carlisle is located near England’s border with Scotland. It was a Roman town for four centuries, then declined for 500 years, followed by four centuries of border warfare and strife between England and Scotland. These turbulent years did not encourage the inhabitants to build for posterity! However, you can still see some old houses, such as the Guildhall (1407) and Tullie House (1609).
