What an amazing place! The main hall is stunning. Arrived late in the afternoon so didn't see most of the stuff, but what we did see took our breath away.

Very atmospheric building, lots of character and built from both sandstone and rock taken from Hadrian's wall .

Was not built by engineers as plenty of subsidence to add to the grand carvings.

Guides are very helpful and informative, worth a visit if in the town and want to kill half hour especially if it is raining outside

This abbey has beautiful windows, which together with the other historical artefact, makes for a very interesting look around

If you're visiting Carlisle, certainly pop in and check it out. It is certainly part of a great historical city. A nice escape from the plebians in town to shop. And a nice escape from the horrible cheap stores that now line the streets.

Try eating in the Under-croft Restaurant in this medieval cathedral. Super meals and snacks all freshly prepared on the day. I always this this restaurant as it is not that well known for visitors, but frequented by locals regularly. It is earning a reputation as a place to go for good wholesome food. Only downside is access is down a flight of twisting stairs
