The city of Carlisle is a local government district of Cumbria, England, with the status of a city and non-metropolitan district.

The city has a population of 100,739.
The City of Carlisle is located at the extreme north of North West England. It encompasses Cumbria's county town, Carlisle, and its surrounding rural hinterland. Although 70% of the city's 100,750 people live in central Carlisle, 98% of the city's land use is rural.
