Lanercost Priory

Reviewed By Sharon E - North Wales, United Kingdom

This huge building stands out for miles. Nice colours and settled amongst the trees. Makes you wonder how and why these buildings end up where they do, great undercroft to view, and when the sun comes out, the transformation in the stones is amazing. Small little gift shop, and lovely church next door. There is a much bigger shop and cafe nearby - which is not English heritage - just be aware.

Birdoswald Roman Fort

Visitors can view recent excavations of this Roman fort built on Hadrian's Wall, while learning about its interesting 2,000-year history.

Reviewed By Graham R - Adelaide, Australia

A very pleasant surprise when walking Hadrians wall to take a break and view how the now demolished Roman Fort stood those 2000 yrs ago, and how the people there lived. The info centre and the new accomodation being built will be a boon to the tourism of the area.

Solway Aviation Museum

The Museum is open from Easter until the last weekend in October on a Friday & Saturday. We are also open on the Bank Holiday Mondays. We have some exciting new exhibits demonstrating the close ties that existed between the RAF and the City of Carlisle. We're also home to a collection of aircraft, aviation artifact's and displays some reflecting Britain's position as a world leader in aircraft design and innovation and the main developer and manufacturer of a reliable jet engine. The museum's primary objective is the preservation of our Aviation heritage, its display and interpretation. Take a nostalgic journey back to Wartime Cumberland or climb aboard a Vulcan Bomber and experience the conditions the crew faced that would have had to deliver Britain's nuclear deterrent in the 60's. The museum is a Registered Charity and is run by a dedicated team of friendly and enthusiastic volunteers who give up their free time to painstakingly restore many of the exhibits. Through their love and knowledge they are preserving aviation history for generations to come.

Reviewed By TiggerandBobby

We put the postcode into the sat nav which took us to some road closed sections near the museum but we got there eventually. Lots to see inside the museum and very informative. A little annoying that having picked up goods to the value of around £25 in the gift shop, the Scottish lady wouldn't serve us while people wanted to pay to come in the museum - I thought we'd turned invisible. Plane exhibits outside to look round but could do with some signs to tell you how to get to the Vulcan which we stood outside but couldn't go up into as there were too many people in a large group in front of us. That was disappointing for our 9 year old and we didn't want to hang around as it was blowing a gale.

St Mary Magdalene Church

Reviewed By sbizzle - london

This church and the priory were probably the highlight of our day.
The windows were gorgeous and we were shown the William
Morris designed altar cloth by the most informative lady.
The church is clearly active and there are some nice things to buy, along William Morris or Christian lines.
PS Found out that Brampton church has a very large Burne -Jones window but we had missed it and we weren't prepared to cycle back!

A good preserved section of the wall runs from Gilsland to Lanercost priory. Not just the wall, but plenty of things to see along the way, not just the wall, but quaint churches and overall, a nice walk
