Lancashire

LANCASHIRE

From bustling, vibrant cities to the peace of the Great Outdoors, the county of Lancashire allows you to make your break whatever you want it to be. Located in the North West of England, it’s bordered by Manchester, Merseyside, Cumbria and Yorkshire. Lancashire is probably most famous for its prominence during the Industrial Revolution. However, in the 21st Century, this county has changed dramatically and is now something of a holiday hotspot.

A Small City With an Expansive Past

The city of Lancaster is at the heart of the county and while it may be a comparatively small city, it has an expansive past. History buffs will be able to soak up a wide range of attractions, from a Roman tomb to the dank dungeons of Lancaster Castle. However, if your tastes are more in the present, Lancaster is a superb city for shopping, boasting a modern shopping centre but upholding its heritage as a market town, with twice-weekly markets held in the city square.

From Blackpool to Boats

Families with children will find plenty to see and do, from the glitz and showmanship of Blackpool to the birds of prey you’ll find in Turbary Woods. If you’re looking to combine entertainment with education, a trip to the Lancaster Maritime Museum will give the whole group a detailed overview of the county’s maritime history.

Living it up in Lancashire

Lancashire has often been overlooked in its capacity as a destination for food-lovers; most of us have heard of its signature dish the Lancashire Hotpot, but little else. With the growing demand for locally-sourced produce, the county has finally found the acclaim it deserves and there are superb restaurants in abundance. Be sure to check out the rustic charm of the award-winning Asheton Arms in Downham or the chic, contemporary cuisine offered by the Michelin-starred Northcote restaurant in Langho Blackburn.
