Cumbria is among England's most desirable places to visit, thanks largely to its abundance of breath-taking scenery and ample picturesque walks. The county has far more to offer than just the countryside, however. It's also a place with a fascinating history. There are few historical attractions more enchanting and educational that Carlisle Castle, which is located close to the city centre. Thankfully for visitors, there are plenty of exquisite guesthouses and B&Bs within walking distance of the site.
Carlisle Castle was built more than 900 years ago, by the son of William the Conqueror. At the time, Cumbria was a part of Scotland, sitting north of the border. Since that time, the castle has played a prominent role in numerous conflicts, many of which have been fought between the Scots and the English.
The castle remains largely intact, giving visitors a fascinating insight into the history of the city. Among the highlights is Queen Mary's Tower, where the Queen of Scots was once held captive.
The site of Carlisle Castle is run by English Heritage, and comprises a number of educational facilities. There's a permanent exhibition and military museum which are dedicated to telling the story of this interesting castle.
There are also plenty of facilities on the site to help make your visit run smoothly. Visitors can expect disabled parking, picnic areas, baby-changing facilities and a shop for both refreshments and souvenirs.
The 12th-century castle sits close to Carlisle centre, putting it within easy reach of some of the best hotels in Cumbria. Those staying in the centre can also find the Cathedral and football ground nearby.
The Hallmark Hotel provides guests with a convenient central location, just minutes away from Carlisle's train station. The elegant four-star hotel offers guests a touch of luxury and even houses a number of meeting rooms, ideal for professional guests. Also close to the train station is the Ibis Carlisle, which offers incredible value and excellent facilities. Those who prefer to stay a little way out of the city centre will find the Cumbria Park Hotel, on Carlisle's northern edge, ticks all the boxes - still close to all amenities but with that tranquillity you're looking for in a Cumbria hotel.
