This borders city history goes back 2000 years with a fine cathedral, Carlisle and award winning museum Tullie House.
Carlisle castle was originally built by William the Conqueror in 1092. It has been the setting for many battles and skirmishes over the years and more recently it is the home for the museum of the now defunct Kings Own Royal Border Regiment.
The Hadrian’s Wall Heritage Trail and many historic landmarks are close by making Warwick Lodge an ideal base to explore the area.
For many years, the border area between England and Scotland was known as the ‘debatable lands’. The families of the Grahams, Armstrongs, Elliots and many others fought and pillaged the area. Many buildings and sites remain today.
