Carlisle Market Hall is one of the few remaining covered Victorian market halls left in the country. Inside are a range of vendors including haberdasheries, grocers, florists and newsagents. The Market Hall also hosts a variety of food vendors providing simple take away meals from sweet treats to pizza. It has been a reliable shopping area for local residents for many years. Furthermore, many of its vendors are family businesses.
Carlisle Market Hall is an impressive piece of Victorian architecture. It has high vaulted ceilings and large open spaces. It is directly connected to other large chain stores such as Wilko and TK Maxx that share a home on the same premises. There is level access on Scotch Street and on Fisher Street through Wilko. There is ramp access on West Tower Street. Street parking is available on neighbouring streets. Bus transport is available from West Tower Street. Alternatively, the bus station and Carlisle train station are a fifteen minute walk away.
The whole Market Hall is level access and wheelchair accessible. Some vendors stalls contain a step up but visitors can request a ramp to be laid to access the interior of stalls. Ramps grant access from West Tower Street but the entrances from Wilko and Scotch Street are level access.
The lighting inside Carlisle Market Hall is comfortable. There is usually some noise during busy hours, but the atmosphere is generally quite comfortable with plenty of space to manoeuvre.
