Lowther Arcade, Carlisle


Lowther Arcade runs between Lowther Street and English Street in Carlisle, and dates from 1904. The East entrance to arcade (Nos 15 & 17 Lowther Street) was built for the Carlisle Old Brewery Company by Henry Higginson of Carlisle. This is a listed building. The West entrance on English Street is by the former Three Crowns Hotel, built by the same architect. The State Management Scheme acquired the Three Crowns Hotel and with it the Lowther Arcade. The Three Crowns (renamed the "Citadel Restaurant"), together with the Lowther Arcade, were sold to Scottish & Newcastle Breweries in 1973. The Lowther Arcade was renovated in 2000.
