From the impregnable Castle to the imposing Citadel, this virtual tour of Carlisle uncovers 2000 years of history.

Two Roman forts, along with Hadrian’s Wall, helped secure the northern limit of the mighty Roman Empire. A thousand years later, the Norman castle kept attackers at bay, whilst the city’s close proximity to Scotland has kept Carlisle on its guard for centuries (and perhaps still does).
