Store your luggage around Carlisle with Bounce

Located in Cumbria in the north of England, Carlisle is an impressive cathedral city probably best known for Carlisle Castle, built in 1092 by William II, making it well over 900 years old. Carlisle is also very close to another major British attraction - Hadrian's Wall. It's easy to spend a few hours wandering the ruins of this well-known Roman-built area.

Carlisle Railway Station is usually the best way to get into the city, and for flights, Newcastle International Airport is a good bet at just over an hour east of Carlisle.

Carlisle itself is relatively small, but the city manages to pack a bunch of great things to do into the city limits (and a little beyond). From unique shopping options to tasty restaurants to informative museums, Carlisle is the perfect escape from larger cities while still offering plenty to do.

As you navigate the city, remember that if you have extra luggage with you, it's likely going to get in the way. Sightseeing is so much easier when you're not carrying heavy backpacks or dragging large suitcases behind you. Luckily, Bounce has the perfect solution for your bags. We offer customers the option to store luggage throughout the UK, including in places like Carlisle.

Luggage storage in Carlisle

The Carlisle Railway Station doesn't have any station lockers, so when in town, you'll need to find luggage storage elsewhere. That's where Bounce comes in, with convenient luggage storage facilities in the city centre. Regardless of where you travel in the UK, Bounce is a great alternative to smaller train station lockers and offers a safe place to store bags of any size for a few hours or multiple days at a time.

Bounce is just what you need to have a relaxing trip in Carlisle. Our excellent service, combined with affordable rates and easy access to your things, make choosing us a no-brainer. Don't trust the local hotels with your suitcases when you can use Bounce. We have the BounceShield Protection to make sure you're covered in the rare case that anything happens to your bags as well. When you need security, great value, flexibility, and friendly staff, Bounce is always the answer.

Things to do in Carlisle

As we mentioned, Carlisle Castle is one of the top attractions here, but there are still many other things to keep you busy.

Museums in Carlisle

With hundreds of years of history, it's not surprising that Carlisle is home to many fantastic museums. Visitors can learn all about the military, artistic, and cultural history of the area. Heading to one of these museums is a great way to start your trip and get a feel for the city's proud vibe.


Tullie is an intriguing museum in Carlisle, but it's actually even more than that. The site, located between Carlisle Cathedral and the castle, is easily added to any itinerary. Aside from a typical museum, Tullie is an art gallery and a hub for the community. The exhibits change periodically, but you'll find five main areas here: the exhibition gallery, the border galleries, the Roman frontier gallery, the costume collection, and Old Tullie House. In all, there are nearly one million items in the collection.

Although everything is worth checking out here, Old Tullie House is of particular interest. Built in 1689, some original features are still accessible to visitors. Check out the original fireplace and oak staircase as you peruse the collections of Pre-Raphaelite pieces and works by Cumbrian artists.

There are free lockers to use here, but keep in mind that they are subject to availability and may not fit larger items. Bounce can store luggage of any size and pretty much always has room for you.

Cumbria's Museum of Military Life

Located on the north side of the city centre within the confines of Carlisle Castle, Cumbria's Museum of Military Life showcases over 300 years of military history focusing on five local regiments. The building was relocated in 2014 to provide more space for exhibits of important military artifacts, images, and stories. The museum doesn't advertise any secure storage onsite, and even though the premises were expanded, the displays take up a lot of space. Large backpacks and roller suitcases should not be brought inside. Instead, store your things with Bounce - the best luggage storage Carlisle offers.

Carlisle Castle

We can't talk about museums in Carlisle without mentioning its famous (and iconic) castle. You'll want to wander around taking it all in, but a visit to a few specific areas is recommended. The first is Queen Mary's Tower, where Mary, Queen of Scots, was confined starting in 1568. The second is the exhibition detailing the famous (or infamous) people who inhabited the castle.

Visitors should also check out the prisoner's stone carvings throughout the castle and the suite of rooms that were once the warden's apartment.

Some of the areas of the castle are narrow, and as the city's most popular attraction, space is often limited here. To avoid any difficulties, leave your bags in secure storage with Bounce.

Shopping in Carlisle

From local markets to charming malls, the shopping scene in Carlisle has everything you might need. Here are a few of our favorites:

The Market Hall

This beautiful covered market is the ideal stop in the summer for its lovely food items, handicrafts, and services, like clothing repair. Large windows and skylights give the market an airy feel, though if you're in town in the winter, you may want to give this one a pass since there is no heating. Additionally, there are fewer vendors during the winter months.

The Lanes Shopping Centre

This single-story mall manages to fit around 70 different outlets into its pretty glass-roofed structure. This shopper's paradise is located on Globe Lane, conveniently situated in the city centre. Open year-round, this is the place to get your retail fix from well-known brands like Primark, Poundland, LUSH, New Look, and HMV.

Aside from an ample selection of shops, the Lanes offers cafés, like Costa, and fast-food snack spots like Greggs - ideal for a sausage roll on the go.

Saint Nicolas Gate Retail Park

Southeast of the city centre, Saint Nicolas Gate is more of a big box shopping experience, with giants like ASDA occupying the prime space here. You can purchase housewares, clothing, groceries, sporting equipment, and much more when you make the 1.5-mile trip.

When you're planning a day of shopping, especially if you have to check out of your hotel first, make a plan for your luggage, too. None of these shopping locations offer on-site luggage storage. Carlisle shopping will be so much more fun if you only have to carry shopping bags, not suitcases.

Restaurants in Carlisle

Cities in the UK often offer restaurants with a range of different cuisines, and Carlisle is no different. From Italian to English to Greek to Thai, you can find a restaurant to suit your tastes here. Start off with these:

Alexandros Greek Restaurant and Deli

For a casual atmosphere and arguably the best Greek food in town, head to Alexandros. Locally made and produced ingredients are incorporated wherever possible, and you can expect tasty main dishes like lamb shank, fillet steak, and souvlaki on the menu. Pair these with their colorful Greek salad, a plate of mixed dips, or spicy butter beans, and you've got yourself a satisfying meal!

La Mezzaluna

Modern Carlisle meets classic Italian at this eatery on the outskirts of the city centre. Vibrant flowers line the windows, and the coveted outdoor patio is the place to be in warm weather. The traditional Italian chef offers a menu full of typical Italian favorites and inventive dishes while staying true to their Italian roots.

Reservations are recommended for the small street-facing patio, and from the menu, consider trying the vegetable risotto, the house cannelloni, or the chicken Mezzaluna with mushrooms, onions, cream, white wine, and fresh herbs.

David's Restaurant

When you don't mind spending a little extra, have something to celebrate, or just want more of a fine dining experience, go with David's Restaurant. Located in a charming Victorian townhouse, you'll enjoy the British and European cuisine in such a homey setting. The menu focuses on what's currently in season, so it changes often. You'll have the choice between a lunch-specific menu, an a la carte menu, and a mid-week special menu here.

While most restaurants won't refuse entry if you're dining with your suitcase, having extra bags at your table and on the trip to and from the restaurant isn't ideal. Bounce is just what travelers need in Carlisle, as we can store whatever you have with you for as long as you need.
