Another service operates from Glasgow by First ScotRail, with local services from Leeds and Borrow-in-Furness being operated by Northern Rail. Renovations at the station, which originally opened in 1847, with car hire and a car park with almost two hundred spaces found on the grounds of the station.

Carlisle

The historic city of Carlisle in Cumbria offers many options for things to do and see in one of the most isolated, yet beautiful regions of the England-Scotland border. Built in the 12th century, Carlisle Castle still stands and provides a glimpse into medieval history and the architectural feats of William the Second. Shopping opportunities are plenty within the city, including the largely pedestrianised central shopping area. Amongst the shops are many locally owned businesses sitting side by side with national and international chains. Many festivals can be visited throughout the year in central Carlisle, focussing around all sorts of topics, including food and drink. Visitors interested in performance can explore include live concerts at Carlisle United FC's Brunton Park and a huge number of touring performances taking place each year at the Sands Centre in the city centre.
