Moving to Carlisle
If you are moving to Carlisle, Cumbria’s capital and England’s largest city by area, you will find a beautiful city steeped in history, with affordable housing. Carlisle is located near the England-Scotland border, and is on the doorstep of the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall, with Carlisle Castle, a formidable presence overlooking the city for over 900 years.
Carlisle has a prosperous growing economy, and with a history dating back over 2000 years, it is not surprising that Carlisle is rich with period properties as well as new-builds, part of the Carlisle District Local plan (2015-2030). Stanwix, just across the river from the city centre, has every type of property imaginable; from quaint terraces to Georgian and Victorian family sized properties. A lot of the popular residential areas, such as Warwick Road, Chatsworth Square, and Dalston Road, benefit from easy access to the city centre whilst sitting in leafy avenues.
The Lanes shopping centre is the place to go for a spot of retail therapy, with over 60 stores under one roof. For bars and restaurants the city centre near Botchergate and Market Square are the areas to head for.
Schools in Carlisle
There are many primary schools in Carlisle area with St Bede’s RC Primary School #1, and Hayton CoE, Lanercost CoE and Crosby-on-Eden CoE all rated Ofsted Outstanding.
Secondary schools are not as strong in Carlisle. Both Trinity School and Richard Rose Central Academy ‘require improvement’ according to Ofsted, but St John Henry Newman Catholic School is ‘good’.
Students wanting to carry on their studies can attend Carlisle College. Carlisle is also home to the university of Cumbria, known for its innovative learning.
Transport Links Carlisle
Congestion in the city centre is rife, but there are plans to improve transport links, with talks of a bypass to alleviate this. However, getting out of Carlisle is no issue, with the M6 just to the east.
Carlisle Citadel railway station has eight platforms and there are direct services to London Euston, Glasgow Central, Birmingham New Street, Newcastle Central, as well as a number of more local and regional stations.
