ENGLISH HERITAGE online: information and bookings

Carlisle Castle is a great medieval fortress that has watched over the City of Carlisle for over nine centuries. Visitors can explore fascinating and ancient chambers, stairways and dungeons and find the legendary 'licking stones'.

Here, parched Jacobite prisoners found enough moisture to stay alive, only to be brutally executed on Gallows Hill.

Uncover a fascinating history through lively exhibitions, offering an insight into William Rufus, Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie.

You may take a guided tour of the Castle. There is a gift shop with a range of souvenirs with a medieval theme.

The Castle is also home to the Border Regiment Museum which relates the history of Cumbria's County Infantry Regiment, the Border Regiment and the King's Own Royal Border Regiment and local Militia.
