Things to Do
The start of an adventure...
Surrounded by spectacular landscape, the Gilsland Hall Hotel is at the heart of some of Britain's best walking country and with some of the finest Roman remains right on the doorstep you will never be short of things to do when you stay with us.
If you want to know how the Romans conquered the world, visit Vindolanda. One of the most important archaeological sites in Europe, here there is always something new to discover.
Bouldering at Eden Rock
These world class facilities offer various different routes, so even if you have never been attached to the end of a climbing rope before, the expert team can guide you through.
Solway Aviation Museum
Based at Carlisle Airport, the museum charts British aviation history, from the RAF in the Second World War to the ill-fated space race and there's also chance to step inside a Vulcan Bomber.
Explore the ruins of one of Cumbria’s best-preserved monasteries. This 13th century church, which has a colourful history, including once being attacked by Robert the Bruce, is a real architectural gem.
