Mini guide to Brampton

     

Located in the northeast of Cumbria, Brampton is a small market town that was founded in the 7th century. It has been suggested that the town's name is a derivative of the word 'brambles' and was acquired on account of the area's previous abundance of the thorny bush.

The town has much in the way of history, including its popular market, which dates back to 1252 when Henry III first granted its charter. The octagonal Moot Hall was built by the Earl of Lancaster in 1817 and remains the focal point of the market place. The building has had a varied history, but now serves as the town's Tourist Information Centre.

Around the town you can appreciate a number of other historic buildings including Oulton House from the 17th century, as well as Eden House and the Howard Arms from the early 19th century. The town, once famous for cotton weaving, also features rows of old weaver's cottages still preserved in their original form.

Brampton's restaurants and nightlife reflect the fact that it is a typical rural market town. Traditional English restaurants and pubs serving great pub food are popular with visitors, while there are a small number of foreign restaurants for those craving something a little more exotic.

Not far from Brampton is the border city of Carlisle, which offers a wealth of historical attractions. The city's famous castle was founded in 1092 by William the Conqueror's son William Rufus and it later became the setting for the incarceration of Mary Queen of Scots.

Brampton can be reached by car via the M6 motorway and the A69. It also has its own railway station and is served by Carlisle Airport, which is about nine miles away.
