We have been lunching at Tullie House for 20+ years and have never found a fault before now - hence the average overall rating! Being Coeliac, the staff have always been as helpful as possible - even when they didn't quite understand the condition they always went out of their way to get me something from the kitchen that I...

Dear Visitor, Thank you for you comments. Owing to the adverse colder weather, we have recently temporarily removed the salad bar and replaced it with afternoon tea treats. We have maintained the choice of salads on offer as before, with the Tullie House Salad Bowl available direct from the kitchen. As in the past we are very obliging by altering... More

I dont understand people they all have to visit here .. so nice. It is only a couple of minutes away from the main shopping area and merits a return visit as, like all museums, you always see something new every time.

Took the 2 granddaughters for the first time and found plenty to interest them and will definitely keep taking them back as they get older. We also went to the café for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of food on offer for all ages.

A must see place if new to Cumbria. Lots of interesting facts to be learned. Lots of activities to take part in. Get a chance to dress up in Victorian clothing.

Brought my grandchildren back here following a very successful school trip. I have been to Carlisle many times, albeit shopping or bringing the car in for servicing. However a visit to Tullie House is a must even if you are not interested in history. It is only a couple of minutes away from the main shopping area and merits a... More
