Walking in Carlisle
Walking is one of the best ways to improve your fitness and maximise health benefits. The short definition of a health walk is "a purposeful, brisk walk done on a regular basis". It can include any walk which is specifically designed and carried out for the purpose of improving your health.
Walking is the easiest, most accessible, cost effective, and enjoyable way for most people to increase their physical activity. The circular walking route through the beautiful city of Carlisle offers a mix of urban and green walking. You’ll head across beautiful parks, along riverside paths and through the city, passing some impressive buildings. You’re even treated to a stretch of Hadrian’s Wall, the famous Roman frontier.
