The City of Lancaster

About Lancaster

As the county town of Lancashire, Lancaster is at the forefront of innovation and growth, particularly in the digital sector. It boasts a rich portfolio of assets stretching out across the stunning coastal landscape of Morecambe Bay and two areas of outstanding natural beauty, with unique historic landmarks such as Lancaster Castle, which is owned by the Queen, as Duke of Lancaster.

Lancaster is one of England’s most vibrant historic cities, with a thriving music, arts and café culture scene. Education, culture and heritage come together as Lancaster University, including its new Health Innovation Campus, and the University of Cumbria sit within the city boundaries. The proposed Eden Project North in Morecambe also adds to the momentum building in the region. It boasts excellent transport links, being on the M6 and the West Coast main railway line. This district looks to the future, yet is proud of its heritage.
