Good renovation of station roof in recent times. Makes the station appear bright and spacious and brings the original Victorian building to life. Easy to access. Plenty of places to just sit and watch the trains.

An ordinary looking station with a small ticket offer at the main entrance. Nothing special to see, however the staff are very helpful.

I use Carlilsle railway station several times a year, and it's one of the best mainline stations in Britain. Unlike some of the miserable concrete stations that were built in the sixties and seventies, Carlisle station is still mostly original and resembles a castle when...More
