Amenities in the city include the usual high street brands as well as independent shops. The development offers easy access to the M6, A69, A6 and A595 and is serviced by a regular bus route.

Local area

Sitting on the south eastern fringe of Carlisle, The Ridings is close enough to the city centre for all your needs, yet far enough away to offer the quieter lifestyle of a small town. A stone's throw away is 4.5 acres of fun and relaxation at Hammond's Pond, where families, dog walkers and lovers of the outdoors can spend many an hour enjoying the peace and quiet or have fun on the boating lake, play park, football pitches, all weather ball court and the miniature railway. One of the biggest draws to the area is Carlisle Racecourse; which provided inspiration for the development name itself. The area includes a good mix of local shops and amenities, as well as offering strong transport links to the M6 motorway north and south and the A6.
