Topic - What's Carlisle like as a place to live?

on a far off mountain - on 24 Feb 2013
I've got an opportunity to apply for a good job in Carlisle but not sure whether I'd actually like to live there. I've only ever been in Carlisle to get to the train station so haven't got a handle on what it is really like. Obviously I would visit before committing to living there but I'm not sure whether to spend time sticking in an application when my to do list is rather lengthy!

Advantages as I see it are:
- close to Scotland
- nice countryside on doorstep
- easy to get out of
- ummm......

Has it got some quirky things to do/nice shops/cafes/theatre? Other options include Kendal and Lancaster....better/worse/don't touch any of them with a bargepole? I'm not a fan of big cities but it would be nice to live somewhere which feels thriving. Any insights would be gratefully received :)
