Carlisle is a city and the county town of Cumbria. Change things up with these side-trips from Carlisle: Lakeland Motor Museum (in Backbarrow), Cragside House and Gardens (in Rothbury) and Windermere (Michael Coates Clay Shooting, Lake Windermere, & more). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Derwentwater, tour the pleasant surroundings at Catbells Lakeland Walk, explore the historical opulence of Carlisle Castle, and admire the masterpieces at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery.
