All you need to know about Lancaster

Lancaster is a rural city and county town in northwest England, located on the River Lune. Part of Lancashire, it’s a key cultural and educational hub home to roughly 53,000 people.   

Like many historic places, Lancaster has its fair share of landmarks and monuments. Famous points of interest include Lancaster Castle, Williamson Park and the Trough of Bowland: a picturesque valley, part of the Forest of Bowland. The city has close ties to the British Monarchy. The House of Lancaster – a former royal household – was based there. It’s also where you’ll find the Duke of Lancaster’s private estate, the Duchy of Lancaster.

Lancaster is a constituent part of the City of Lancaster: a local government district, made up of neighbouring towns like Morecambe, Heysham and Carnforth, where employment is divided across a number of sectors and industries.

It’s a pretty place to live, work and study, with two university campuses – one for the University of Lancaster, and another for the University of Cumbria.
