The slogan is elementary, my dear tourist board

Carlisle author Martin Daley draws much inspiration from his home city. His new book, The Casebook of Inspector Armstrong, features a Carlisle-based Edwardian detective.

Martin has also written a Sherlock Holmes story set in the Border City.

He says: “Carlisle plays a really big part in the books. Its past is a backdrop for the stories. When you think about the people that have been here, Romans, kings and queens.”

Martin’s website develops this theme. There’s a page exploring Carlisle’s history from medieval times to the present day.

At the end of this potted history, Martin offers this tongue-in-cheek invitation to visit his home city:

‘Celts, Saxons, Vikings, Romans, Royalists, Parliamentarians, US Presidents and The Black Death have all visited Carlisle – why don’t you give it a go?’

If the city’s tourist board has been looking for a new slogan, the search has surely just ended.
