Tullie House Museum
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
Old Tullie HouseThe core of the museum is Old Tullie House, built in 1689, on the site of an earlier house begun in the 16th century by the Tullie family. The Jacobean origins of the building are most easily seen behind the museum, where there is a beautifully recreated herb garden and courtyard. Other surviving 17th century features from the original house include a beautifully carved oak staircase and fireplace.
The Tullie family occupied the house, known simply as White House, until the 19th century. It was then occupied for many years by the Dixon family, whose portraits can be seen on the first floor.
A pedestrian subway links Tullie House to Carlisle Castle.
