Situated in the heart of the historic city, the Halston sits in a stunning example of Edwardian indulgence, a former General Post Office, built in 1916. It offers a scrumptious bar and bistro, 16 sumptuous apartments, stylish, contemporary furnishings and a fully equipped spa, perfect for pampering.

Carlisle is one of England’s friendliest cities to visit, a place that boasts regular international food markets, a vibrant live music scene, laughs aplenty at its comedy venues, art galleries and art house cinema for culture vultures, as well as stunning riverside walks.

Carlisle’s history as the country’s most besieged border city means it’s rich in captivating sights. Use your city break to uncover Carlisle Castle’s ghastly secrets before striking out into Cumbria’s rolling countryside with a trip to Hadrian’s Wall.
