Lancaster is a probably best described as a historic market town and much of its charm and character is reflected in these attributes. Nowadays it is also seen as a place to enjoy a sophisticated night out, with its many city centre real ale pubs and restaurants, enjoyed as much by the residents of the city as the bustling student population that go to the main University or many colleges.

Lancaster as a town of learning then? Well, that much is very true, especially when you consider Lancaster's tourist attractions, of which there are many gems hidden around the city.

The most obvious attraction, which many people see on the way into Lancaster, is Ashton Memorial, named after one of the city's most generous benefactors of the 18th century, Lord Ashton. This stunning example of architecture stands proud over the city, within the bounds of Williamson park, and is one of the many places in and around the city where pleasant walking can be enjoyed.

Lancaster of course has a castle too, which also doubles up as a jail. A little know fact is that the 'gaol' was first established in 1196 making it the oldest in the world. Add into the mix a priory next door and you have somewhere that is well worth visiting.

Other notable Lancaster attractions include the Maritime museum, Judges Lodgings, as well as the Grand theatre and Dukes playhouse. Oh, and of course the Beerfest every March.
