Being the closest large city to Hadrian’s wall, it is also the main industrial, cultural and commercial city in north Cubmbria. Located in the North of England, and North Cumbria, it’s a fantastic location to take a tour to if you’re looking to learn more about the wall, or Carlisle itself.
Hadrian’s wall was built by the Romans, in an attempt to barricade off the rest of Britannia, after they invaded in 122AD. With a fortress every 5 miles down the wall, its quite the sight when looking directly at it. With much of the wall still standing, it has become a tourist attraction and the most popular attraction in northern England at that. Being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, it can be visited the next time you’re heading up to Scotland or to Carlisle.
