Mini guide to Lancaster

     

The historic county town of Lancaster sits on the River Lune, in the Northwest of England, close to Morecambe Bay. The town has a strong Georgian influence and is well known for its Norman Castle, and Roman and Medieval remains.

Lancaster Castle is a working building and houses two Crown Courts and a prison and has guided tours for visitors at all times in the year. Alongside the castle, on Castle Hill, sits the ancient Priory Church of St Mary the Virgin with its commanding views of the city and Morecambe Bay.

A walk into the city reveals more of Lancaster's historic charm, as you stroll by Georgian buildings, through cobbled streets and into bustling squares. In Market Square you will find the City Museum, the original Town Hall dating from 1781, which houses many exhibitions. At the Quay there is the Maritime Museum, harking back to the days of trading clippers and merchant ships.

Down the many charming alleys and side streets you will find a host of cafes, bistros and specialist shops. There are two shopping centres, Marketgate and St Nicholas Arcades, a specially designed indoor market and a monthly farmer's market. The 200 year old Lancaster Canal passes through the centre, where you can walk the towpath or feast at waterside pubs.

Morecambe, a Victorian holiday resort, lies close by, where you can find all the attractions of the seaside and a vast sandy bay. Going North leads you to the Lake District and some of the most famous lakes in England such as Windermere and Coniston, and quaint towns and villages such as Grange-Over-Sands and Cartmel.

Lancaster lies close to the M6 Motorway (junction 34) and is only one hour and a half away from the international airport at Manchester. From London Euston, the hourly train journey is 3 hours.
