About the tour
From your base in Carlisle, travel on three incredible railway lines, and enjoy the breathtaking panorama of the spectacular north of England, including the world-famous and UNESCO-listed Lake District.
Begin your holiday at the Hallmark Hotel in Carlisle, where you meet your group and Tour Manager. Located right near the border of Scotland, Carlisle is a city surrounded by beauty. With the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and Hadrian's Wall all located just a train ride away, this is the perfect city in which to start your explorations of some of England's most significant areas of beauty.
Carlisle's history dates back to Roman times, and, as such, it boasts a myriad of historic buildings and beautiful architecture. Carlisle Castle, a sturdy fort that has been put to use many times over the years in its defence of England, was built during the reign of William II, son of William the Conqueror. But many of the streets are infused with more modern history, thanks to Carlisle's place as a centre of textile manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution, the time when Carlisle became an epicentre for the railways. Your hotel is situated just outside the gorgeous Grade II listed station.
