Just 16 km south of the Scottish border and lying on the confluence of rivers Petteril, Eden and Caldew is Carlisle, the county town of Cumbria that is also called the Border City. The proximity of the town to the Kingdom of Scotland is one reason it served well as a Roman settlement in the Middle Ages. Carlisle has since evolved from a mill town to an industrial one, to the commercial hub that it is today. One aspect that remains true all through the changes is the cultural and historical heritage that the town carries. The museums and ruins in Carlisle tell a tale of what the city has been through, and its role in history. You can get more knowledge on the Border City by taking the time to visit the different places of importance. At Enterprise, we aim to make that adventure an easy one with our convenient car hire options. With the right vehicle, you can crisscross through the town, basking in its glory.
