Opened in 1847, Carlisle station is a masterpiece in Victorian design. Built in a neo-Tudor style with resplendent sandstone facade, the station recently benefited from an £14.5m investment, restoring its splendidly glazed train-shed roof as part of the process.
With its entrance portico of Gothic-arches (embellished with roundels including Queen Victoria's coat of arms), the station provides a stunning welcome to all travellers and is palatial in nature befitting its status as the first English city south of the Scottish border.
With a total of eight platforms (five terminating), ample concourse and wide platforms, Carlisle offers everything one imagines of a grandiose-station and is ideal for both period and contemporary shoots.
Applications for this location require the completion and submission of a specific Virgin Method Statement template, downloadable here.
