The strapline ‘small city, big story’ couldn’t be more apt. There’s enough attractions in Lancaster for a full day out here, not least 1000-year-old Lancaster Castle. This former prison’s gruesome claim to fame is for hanging the greatest number of people outside London.

A visit to the Maritime Museum is a must, to uncover facts about Lancaster’s past as one of the UK’s busiest ports while Lancaster City Museum’s fascinating artefacts make it a great rainy-day destination. The Coffee Quarter beckons for a caffeine buzz, and don’t overlook a relaxing stroll along Lancaster Canal’s towpath - views of the jaw-dropping Lune Aqueduct included.

Lancaster Grand Theatre has been a major part of the social and cultural life of Lancaster since it opened in 1782.
