CARLISLE Be Part of our Growing City


City of the Lakes - The Carlisle Story Carlisle is the economic capital of Cumbria and the wider Borderlands sub-region, with a catchment encompassing 500,000 people that extends into southern Scotland and the North East.


Located in the far north west of England, it is only 10-miles from the border with Scotland. Its nearest city neighbour is Newcastle 58 miles to the east, with Glasgow lying 96 miles to the north and Lancaster 68 miles to the south.


Making New History


Whilst Carlisle has a rich history dating back 2,000 years, it is now embarking on a new journey. Increasing recognition of its growth potential as the economic capital of the Borderlands has helped to establish Carlisle as a key component of the Northern Powerhouse.


Carlisle is alive to its potential, more confident than ever and looking to its future. Carlisle offers enormous potential for those who want to be part of a growing city.


Excellent Connectivity Carlisle is accessed by three major junctions off the M6 - a recognised growth corridor promoted by Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership. With a principal train station on the West Coast mainline, London is under three and a half hours by direct services to the south with Glasgow within an hour to the north. A £15 million redevelopment of city’s railway station is planned, to enhance connectivity and access into the wider Borderlands region and cement Carlisle’s status as a key stop on the high-speed rail routes of the future.


The city is similarly supported by west to east road and rail links, providing connectivity to Newcastle and the wider north east, and to West Cumbria and the ongoing investment in Britain’s Energy Coast. The government award of £102m towards the cost of the delivery of the new Carlisle Southern Link Road will see these links improved.


The commencement of passenger flights in the summer of 2019 at Carlisle Lake District Airport is opening up Carlisle to new markets and opportunities. Direct connections include London Southend, Belfast and Dublin.
