Many of Cumbria’s highlights are located within easy driving distance of Southwaite, so it is a convenient place to base yourself. Two destinations that should top every visitor’s list is the wonderful Green Market and the ever-popular Carlisle Guildhall. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit Carlisle Cathedral and the Tullie House Museum and Gallery.
Come see popular sporting heroes, the Carlisle United FC, take to the field in the nearby Brunton Park, Carlisle. On game days the area around the stadium becomes a sea of blue and white, as soccer fans flock together to cheer on their home-grown heroes.
When you’re ready to rest your weary feet after enjoying the charming streets of Southwaite, check in to one of the area’s convenient bed-and-breakfast, hotel and short-stay apartment options. If you’re looking for a warm welcome and a good nights sleep it’s hard to go past the North Lakes Hotel And Spa, Penrith, the Hallmark Hotel Carlisle, and the Swallow Carlisle.
