By booking in advance, visitors will be able to discover the history of the beautiful and fascinating Grade I listed building.

The building is of medieval origin, once a Magistrates’ Courthouse and now home to the Carlisle Tourist Information Centre.

There has been a Town Hall on the site since at least 1345.

Visitors will be shown evidence of changes to the building over the centuries both internally and externally.

On the special guided Free tour, visitors will find out why the clock tower only has three clock faces, who was in trouble with the magistrates and the hidden message behind Carlisle’s Market Cross.

The Heritage Open Day will be held on Friday, 17th September at 11 am and 2 pm.

Pre-booking is required by calling 01228 598596 or emailing tourism@carlisle.gov.uk

The main entrance is accessible via steps. However, a lift is available via the ground floor entrance.

The event will run in line with local and national government guidelines at the time of the festival.

Each tour will take about one hour. As this is a Free Event we encourage you to book as soon as possible so as not to miss out.
