If you’re searching for Lancaster hotels, look no further than our offering just a short journey from the historic city centre. It’s ideal for those travelling for business or for pleasure.
Located to the East of Lancashire, Lancaster is the historical centre of the county. Although it is perhaps no longer the centre of life in the county, its rich history and breath-taking landmarks make it one of the North West’s top tourist spots.
Lancaster is easily accessible by road as it is just off the M6 and it also sits on the West Coast main line for trains to London, Glasgow and everywhere in-between. It is also only about 40 minutes from Blackpool International Airport.
Lancaster’s rich heritage means there is so much to see. Perhaps most notably is Lancaster Castle, which totally dominates the city and is one of the finest Norman castles in England, dating back to the 11th Century. The city’s Ashton Memorial, built by Lord Ashton in around 1900 is well worth a visit; nowadays it serves as a venue for classical music concerts.
Discover the history of the city, see a whole host of portraits and landscapes at the Lancaster City Museum or venture to the Lancaster Maritime museum to learn about the city’s great links with the sea. Theatre lovers cannot pass up the opportunity of watching a show in the Grand Theatre, one of England’s oldest.
The Marketgate Shopping Centre and St Nicholas Arcades offer a great all-round shopping experience, peppered with bars and cafés and all the big names of the high street. For those looking for an altogether more original shopping experience, head over to the Indoor Market or the Assembly Rooms Market for anything from fresh produce to antiques and collectibles.
Whatever the purpose of your visit, stay at one of our Lancaster hotels, relax and enjoy your time here.
