Over the last 12 months, Carlisle's niche shopping centre at Carlyle's Court has undergone a number of changes to its retailer "line up", and now boasts a fully let central courtyard area with a strong tenant mix of specialist retailers. Beadle & Hill Jewellers has now relocated to Unit 2 and a number of other retailers have carried out internal refurbishments.

The scheme, which has entrances from both Fisher Street and St Mary's Gate, received a "face lift" in late spring with extensive stone cleaning, lead work repairs and external redecoration works being carried out. In the run up to Christmas, the building and courtyard area is now lit with Christmas lights which create an attractive and festive shopping environment.

Iain Henderson, Director of Carigiet Cowen, who manages Carlyle's Court on behalf of the owners, R O Regional Properties Ltd, says "the scheme is unique in Carlisle with its niche retail offer, and given its location within the heart of Carlisle's historic quarter, it is definitely worth a visit. There is a good synergy with Hoopers whose department store is linked to Carlyle's Court."
