      by henry14 Online Now Jul 13, 2010 at 1:48 PM

      We're attending a show at Carlisle Castle in a couple of weeks. Is there anywhere nice within walking distance of the Castle to eat on a Saturday evening? Looking for something informal and suitable for a teenager.

      Thanks.

      Hi there

      Does anyone know how to get to Hadrian's wall from Carlisle? Is the sight reachable by public transport, is it perhaps within walking distance from the city centre? Thanks.

    • Where to stay (cheap!) near Carlisle

      by julianclaxton Online Now Sep 15, 2004 at 4:52 AM

      I am an artist travelling up to Cumbria as part of October's FRED Festival (1-10 October). I'm aiming to recreate a famous 1960s photograph on Burgh Marshes near Carlisle of the 'Solway Spaceman' (see Antonwalkabout's pages for more info). Does anyone know anywhere good (and cheap) to stay for a few days while I research/carryout the piece. Also local sources of compressors and protective clothing... Any info greatfully received - and if you're in the area and have nothingbetter to do , you could watch or join in!
