Lancaster is a historic city located in a beautiful part of the country and is famous for its history, thriving arts scene and excellent pubs. The 12th century Lancaster castle, for example, showcases 1,000 years of heritage and justice in the city and was
the venue for the famous Pendle Witch trials in the 1600s. For those interested in outdoor pursuits then the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District are right on our doorstep and are well served by both road and rail links from the city.
See you all in Lancaster!
