Owned by the serving monarch, HM Queen Elizabeth II, through the Duchy of Lancaster, Lancaster Castle is a wealth of English history. Since being established by the Romans the castle has been a home to monarchs, a place of trial and execution, and a working prison right up until 2012. Still a crown court, the majority of the castle is now open to the public for the first time in over 1,000 years. Due to COVID-19 restrictions and ongoing restoration work in the Shire Hall guided tours have been suspended until January 2021. The courtyards are open and free to visit but there is no access to any of the buildings at the moment. The cafe is open between 10.00 am and 5.00 pm daily.
Highly reccommend the guided tour as although I'm a bit of a history fan theres always loads more to learn especially here as it was and still is an active crown court within a castle and has a prison too. What's not to like

Please keep this stunning part of England a secret. It is the most gorgeous place - small villages and rolling countryside in one instance then broody hills and windy fella the next.

After a ride down the tidal road, Sunderland Point we walked to pay our respects to a young boy who was taken as a slave from the west indies back in 1736 ish, sadly the poor boy was unable to speak our language and it is thought that he died from a disease to which he had no immunity, he was buried without a coffin or bier in the clothes he passed away in. It was a sad and emotional time however we were glad to have been.

Visited this after a castle tour as it was next to the castle. Great church and there is a nice seating area up the stairs where you can view the hall and architecture.

An opportunity to explore parts of Lancaster Town Hall normally out of bounds to the public. From the Mayor's official parlour and impressive Ashton Hall to the old court room where notorious murderer Buck Ruxton appeared, the tour is a must-do for all Lancastrians and everyone interested in architecture, fine furniture and local history.
Amazing tour round our local town hall. Visit the mayors parlour, council chamber, Aston Hall, court room, police cells and take a hard hat trip up the clock tower for brilliant views over the city. Well worth a visit.
