Safer Shopping in Carlisle
Non-essential stores in England are now able to reopen.
We have been working with Cumbria County Council's highways team, Cumbria Police and local businesses to identify the pinch points in the city centre and support public safety.
Please see our Carlisle reopening - guide for businesses and shoppers.
Plan your journey
When visiting the city centre please plan ahead. Think about how you will be travelling and if you’re driving, where you’ll park and what route you’ll take into the city centre.
Carlisle’s city centre is a safe place to visit and as it is pedestrianised, provides lots of space for social distancing. There is likely to be queuing at shops, so please look out for signage and follow the guidance. This is for your safety.
City Centre officers will also be out and about to help and advise people.
Remember to Stay Local and Shop Local. Please support our independent traders.
