- Lancaster is one of England's Heritage Cities. It's as vibrant as it is quirky, with a captivating past and a cultured present. Creative, independent, and with a great outdoors; Lancaster is a city with great stories to tell.
- It is very student-friendly, packed with pubs, clubs, shops, markets and theatres.
Nightlife and Culture
- There are many pubs in the city centre, some offering comedy nights, music events or discounts on food and drink; and a good selection of cafés and restaurants also. Lancaster has several nightclubs, including the Sugarhouse which is owned and operated by Lancaster University Students' Union.
- The University also has its own theatre, art gallery and concert hall. Other theatres include Dukes Theatre and the Grand Theatre in Lancaster, and the Platform in Morecambe. Multi-screen cinemas operate in Lancaster and Morecambe and the Dukes Cinema offers independent films.
- Noteworthy visitor attractions include Lancaster Castle, the Cathedral, the Ruskin Library and St George's Quay with its award-winning Maritime Museum. Since the prison wing closed in 2011, Lancaster Castle now offers extended tours of the building and courtyard, and runs themed events throughout the year.
- Williamson Park has a café and acres of beautiful parkland to explore and is only a few miles from the campus. Morecambe is also a popular place to visit – with beautiful views across the bay to the Lake District, miles of prom to walk or cycle along, and family-friendly outdoor space at Happy Mount Park.
- Walking and cycling are strongly encouraged; Lancaster prides itself on its excellent network of cycle tracks, and most of the city centre is pedestrianised.
- Local bus services are efficient, and coach services operate to other UK destinations.
- The West Coast railway line runs from London – 251 miles away – to Glasgow, stopping in Lancaster.
- Road networks are good, with the major north–south motorway, the M6, running past the city.
- For those travelling further afield, the region's main airport is Manchester, with a smaller airport at Liverpool; and a ferry service runs to the Isle of Man from Heysham harbour.
