Tours around Lancaster

The information presented on the Lancaster pages is based on the Lancaster City Centre Street Map and Guide 1999

WALKS:

Discovery Tours and Guided Walks: Blue Badge guided tours of many of Lancaster's historic landmarks. Tel: 01524 32878 to book.

Old Calendar Walks: Dr Socrates Gripenerve and Pilling Dick take a torchlit stroll around historic Lancaster, celebrating old traditions. The walks leave from John O'Gaunt Gateway at Lancaster Castle at 7.00pm on New Years Eve, Valentine's Day, St. Georges Day, May Day, Midsummer Eve, Michaelmas Day, Hallowe'en, and St. Nicholas' Day. Tel: 01524 32878 for details.

LANCASTER CANAL:
The Lancaster Canal was opened in 1797 so that coal could be brought to the textile mills of the town. It was designed to use as few locks as possible and so takes a winding route. A pleasant walk can be had along the towpath, where some of the mills can still be seen, and you can stop off for a rest at one of the canalside pubs.
Cruises on The Duke of Lancaster leave from Penny Street Bridge Wharf (E3) every afternoon in summer. Return trips to the Lune Aqueduct take about one and a half hours. Tel: 01524 849484.
