Today we’re taking a closer look at homes for sale in one of England’s northernmost cities- Carlisle. Situated only ten miles south of the Scottish border, Carlisle is a small city of just over 100,000 people. This means it maintains a friendly feel and all attractions and amenities in the city centre are within walking distance.
The city was first established as a Roman settlement, close to Hadrian’s wall, and developed further in the Middle Ages as a military town due to its proximity to Scotland. Carlisle Castle was built around this time, and today houses the Duke of Lancaster’s regiment and a military museum. Carlisle also boasts a beautiful Cathedral, built in the early 12th Century.
It is easy to see what attracts homeowners to Carlisle – it has everything you’d expect in a bustling modern city, including a well-loved University Campus, galleries and museums and great transport links to the rest of the country. We’ve found some of the top houses for sale Carlisle has to offer, and shared them below.
