Stroll through the pedestrianised city centre, browsing in boutique shops and high street stores, and stop off for coffee and cakes at one of the popular coffee shops or out-of-the-way cafés.
A walk along St George's Quay, along the River Lune, will highlight Lancaster’s important maritime history as one of the major ports in England - stop in at the Maritime Museum to explore the city’s heritage as a centre for trade and import - there are plenty of interactive exhibits for the kids, and activities are run during the school holidays.
Up the hill lies Williamson Park with its Butterfly House and Ashton Memorial - the green-domed folly, commissioned by Lord Ashton in memory of his wife, is visible from many points in and around
So why not stay a while and enjoy all there is to experience – choose from boutique bed and breakfasts, convenient city centre hotels or luxurious country house accommodation!
