Carlisle Removals

If you are moving in Carlisle and looking for an efficient, friendly removals company, then Britannia George Bernard Shaw can help. We are a family owned local removals company, providing removals and storage services to suit all kinds of customers in Carlisle and the surrounding areas.

Moving to Carlisle

Carlisle’s located near the England-Scotland border means it has witnessed turning points in history. However, today it is Cumbria’s capital and England’s largest city by area. The city sits on the doorstep of both the Lake District and Hadrian’s Wall and Carlisle Castle is a formidable presence which overlooks the city.

Over the coming years, Carlisle wants to increase its population and establish itself as a university city. For this reason, moving to Carlisle now could be of great benefit for the future as the city develops and flourishes further.

With a history dating back over 2000 years, it is not surprising that Carlisle is rich with period properties. 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.

For those looking to buy a home in Carlisle the property prices have risen in the last couple of years, with the average property price around £143,000 in 2021. Flats averaging £93,000, but for a detached house, you can expect to pay in the region of  £235,000.

If you are interested in renting in Carlisle, one and two bed flats hover between £300 and £400 pcm, whereas three-bed family sized homes are upwards of £400 pcm, escalating to a minimum of £750 pcm for larger or detached homes.

Schools in Carlisle

There are just three primary schools in Carlisle. However, parents are welcome to send their children to schools in the local towns and villages if they wish. Armathwaite School, St Bede’s RC Primary School, and Stanwix School were all awarded ‘good’ in their latest Ofsted reports.

Secondary schools are not as strong in Carlisle. Both Newman Catholic School and Richard Rose Central Academy ‘require improvement’ according to Ofsted, and Richard Rose Morton Academy is ‘inadequate’. However, the saving grace is Trinity School, which is ‘good’.

Students wanting to carry on their studies can attend Carlisle College.

Transport Links Carlisle

Congestion in the city centre is rife, car parks are limited, and there are no Park & Ride schemes in place. There are 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.
