Carlisle Station (Carlisle)

Carlisle Station serves the historic city of Carlisle, close to the Scottish border.

The station was built in 1848 and designed by William Tite. It was greatly extended in 1873. The retaining walls have blind arcading.

The line (usually known as the West Coast Line) comes up from Preston and Lancaster, and passes through Shap, the highest point on the railway network, on its way through the Lake District. It continues Northwards to Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Another line is the famous and picturesque Settle and Carlisle line. This comes up from Leeds via Skipton and Appleby.
