Cumbria's Museum of Military Life

A partnership of two of Carlisle’s oldest institutions.

Located within the ground of the iconic Carlisle Castle since 1932, Cumbria’s Museum of Military Life tells the story of over 300 years of military history.

We are delighted to be able to offer the great taste of John Watt & Son to visitors from across the globe visiting the Cumbria Museum of Military Life.

Our small café serves our award winning espresso, a range of cakes, snacks and ice creams for you to enjoy as you tour our wonderful Castle and learn the stories of our local regiments.
