Live the Life

With a fascinating past and a vibrant present, Lancaster is the county town of Lancashire and is situated favourably near some of the UK’s most stunning landscapes. With its proximity to stunning natural beauty and nearby cities Manchester and Liverpool, it’s no wonder Lancaster is so popular with a mixture of different people who’re delighted to call the town their home.

Things to see and do

One of the most popular attractions in the town is Lancaster Castle, which was used as a prison in centuries gone by. Aside from London, more people were hanged in the castle than any other place in England, making this an eerie but interesting place to visit.

The town is also home to Lancaster Canal where you can take a boat ride across the aqueduct, and the Maritime Museum where you can learn about Lancaster’s history as a port.

If you enjoy getting out and about in the great outdoors, Lancaster is close to the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you can go cycling or hiking. The Lake District National Park and the Yorkshire Dales National Park are also nearby. If you want to take a bike ride to the coast, there is a cycle route from Lancaster all the way to the seaside town of Morecambe. 

Other places of interest in and around Lancaster include Ashton Memorial, Williamson Park and Judge’s Lodgings Museum. If you want to buy locally grown produce, Lancaster Market is open on a Wednesday and Saturday.

If you’re moving to Lancaster with a family in tow, there are an impressive number of ‘outstanding’ schools to consider. Schools include Scotforth St Paul’s Church of England Primary and Nursery School, St Bernadette’s Catholic Primary School, Lancaster Girls’ Grammar School, Ripley St Thomas Church of England Academy and Lancaster Royal Grammar School.

If you have teenagers, Lancaster and Morecambe College provides further education. For older children, Lancaster University is ranked as one of the top ten universities in the UK by the Sunday Times, the Guardian and the Complete University Guide in 2017.
