We invite you to join a very special tour of both Citadel Towers.

In 1541 Henry VIII gave the order to build a Citadel in Carlisle. Hear why it was built and the historic events that influenced its role in history.

By 1822 it was almost completely rebuilt but you will see the Tudor gun ports and Georgian Nisi Prius Court Room in the East Tower and the Grand Jury Room and Old Crown Court in the West Tower.

Tour lasts 1 hour 45 minutes.

There are many steps and stairways to negotiate.

Followed by seasonal refreshments.
