- DURATION 60 mins
This great Border City has a history shaped by its proximity to Scotland and major north−south routes. We will look at the impact this has had on the city and its subsequent development. The tour will start at the imposing castle and take a linear route through the city looking at features that demonstrate 2000 years of Carlisle’s unbroken history.

Meet the Host, Anna Gray
Anna is a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for Cumbria, specialising in personalised tours of Carlisle, Hadrian's Wall and the Lake District. During 2020, Anna began to offer virtual tours (VTs) as a way for people to enjoy learning without the risk of catching Covid, but now recognises how useful VTs are as a means of sharing information, particularly for those who cannot physically access places.
Anna has a wealth of information on all aspects of Cumbria, with much acquired through her other side-line of producing interpretation material in the form of panels, leaflets and booklets, usually on historic or natural history subjects.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).
We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
How do I watch the live event?
Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
How do I sign-up for and access the recording? (Recorded events only)
Book the event as normal (as if you are attending live). After the event ends you will automatically receive a post-event email with a link to the recording, as long as the event was recorded. You do not need to do anything else and there is no separate booking process for recordings only. Please note it can take up to 24 hours for Zoom to process recordings.
