About Carlisle Castle
Standing proud in the city it has dominated for nine centuries, Carlisle Castle remained a working fortress until well within living memory. The most besieged castle in the British Isles, it has a long and turbulent history. Visit the site where Mary, Queen of Scots was held captive and uncover the truth behind the Prisoners’ Carvings found in the castle keep.
Explore the medieval castle rooms, see the castle’s most famous inhabitants brought to life with the exhibition, walk the castle walls and step into what was once the bedroom of Richard III.
We're also home to Cumbria's Museum of Military Life.
