Carlisle ©
Carlisle is a city and the county town of Cumbria. Venture out of the city with trips to Alpacaly Ever After (in Portinscale), Penrith (Aira Force Waterfall & Center Parcs - Whinfell Forest) and The Lakes Distillery (in Bassenthwaite). There's much more to do: explore the activities along Derwentwater, look for gifts at Alternative, see Lake District Off-Road, and examine the collection at The Puzzling Place.

To see traveler tips, maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Carlisle day trip planning website.

Vitoria, Brazil to Carlisle is an approximately 21-hour combination of flight and train. You can also fly. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Vitoria to Carlisle due to the time zone difference. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Vitoria in January, with highs in Carlisle at 6°C and lows at 3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Thu) to allow enough time to drive to Grange-over-Sands.
