Crown & Mitre Hotel

4 English St, Carlisle, CA3 8HZ
Crown & Mitre Hotel Outside

Standing proud in the centre of Carlisle’s main shopping street, the Crown & Mitre Hotel is a fine example of intricate Edwardian architecture. Ornate stone carvings adorn the exterior, and inside you will find sweeping staircases, decorative plasterwork, and sash windows. The hotel is enviably located in the heart of Carlisle, overlooking a section of the pedestrianised centre where there are regular activities and events.

The hotel is just minutes from Carlisle’s impressive cathedral, and the ancient Carlisle castle is just 15-minutes away by foot. Furthermore, the hotel benefits from its own private car park, and further afield, Ullswater is approximately a 40-minute drive away. Former guests include President Woodrow Wilson in 1918, who stayed at the hotel as part of a state visit that included exploring his family links to the city of Carlisle.
