Lancaster, Lancashire

There's lots to see and do in Lancashire. A hot air balloon flight may be perfect for a birthday gift or special celebration.

The historic City of Lancaster is alongside the southern bank of the River Lune. Lancaster Castle is next to the Priory Church of St. Mary, both being on the hill overlooking the river. Panoramic views are seen from the hill across to the west towards Morecambe Bay and the coastline of Morecambe and neighbouring Heysham. The remains of a Roman Bath House and fragments of the 4th Century wall can be see from the path leading from the castle to the Old Custom House beside the river. The Shire Hall in the castle is in regular use as one of Lancaster’s court rooms as well as being a busy museum. To the east of Lancaster is the architectural attraction of the Ashton Memorial Building and the surrounding Williamson Park. The monument stands on a hill on an extensive 54 acres of magnificent parkland. The area includes children’s play areas, picnic areas, quiet woodlands, an Edwardian Tropical Butterfly House, beautiful ornamental lake and Small Mammal House. In the impressive Memorial building is a visitor exhibition and viewing terraces. The white intricate building was built to the memory of the wife of the Lord Ashton. The Judges’ Lodgings, is a popular visitor centre as well as many other stone built historical city buildings. The Lancaster Canal travels south of Lancaster and passes under the A6 continuing east and around the city, crossing the River Lune on the magnificent stone-arched Lune Aqueduct. From late Spring to late Autumn, the Canal Water Bus services begin from near the A6 Bridge and continue north past St Peter’s Catherdral (south) to Carnforth along the lock-free section of the canal.
