Highlights: Carlisle Cathedral, Tullie House Museum
Today was supposed to be a leisurely travel day were we could sleep in and catch the 10 am train. We take didn’t happen as the train was delayed and we then missed our connection which resulted in us getting into Carlisle after 2 pm 😦
As a result our day was restricted to only visiting Tullie House Museum and the Carlisle Cathedral. Tullie House Museum is supposed to be one of Britain best but not in my book. The only interesting display was when the Government trialled being the only organisation that could make and sell beer, i.e. beer was a controlled substance. The Carlisle Cathedral was interesting enough dating from 1123, and a local vicar help point out some historical aspects.
We had planned to eat at Pizza Hut for dinner but after 10 minutes waiting to be served we gave up. The weather is turning colder, but the real killer is the icey cold gale force winds.
