Carlisle, the region's capital, has a superb range of social, leisure and retail opportunities. There is an attractive central pedestrianised area and an impressive cathedral and castle. The city benefits from being on the West Coast Mainline which provides fast and frequent services to London from 3 hours 23 minutes and non-stop to Glasgow. The city's central railway station serves many other destinations including the Lake District, West Cumbria, Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Manchester Airport and Birmingham.
