Situated in the heart of the city’s historic quarter, Carlisle Cathedral offers a unique experience for all ages. Friendly guides are available to help you make the most of your time. Children will enjoy our Brother Herbert I Spy Mystery Trails.

When visiting with family or friends please ask for one of my activity sheets. The I - Spy activity sheet will guide you around the Cathedral to find things of special interest to you. See how quickly you can find the hidden items inside. You can also try my Mystery Trail which will guide you round the Cathedral precinct. When you have finished, take your sheet to the gift shop, where children will receive my special Brother Herbert sticker and be able to choose a gift. Free entry (donations welcome).

Follow signage from the station which will point you to the cathedral. It is a 10 minute level walk from Carlisle station.
