Carlisle Cathedral sits right in the heart of this picturesque city, and is a must-see for any visitor. Work began on the cathedral in the 12th century; the stunningly ornate ceiling you can see today dates from the 14th century. The cathedral is built from local red sandstone, and the east window is the largest and most ornate example of the Flowing Decorated Gothic style in England, measuring over fifty feet in height.
