We travel to Hadrian’s Wall Country to celebrate Christmas in northern Cumbria, a beautiful and unspoilt area of the country. We will enjoy a special Christmas package at the hotel with festive entertainment and take a half day visit to the historic city of Carlisle which is famous for its Castle and Cathedral. Carlisle has been important since Roman times due to its strategic location and is also known as the ‘Great Border City’.
