The compact and cosmopolitan city of Lancaster has a vibrant cultural scene during the summer, including the UK's biggest Walkabout Theatre experience.
Lancaster's outdoor spaces are perfect for summer picnics. The city's grand Edwardian Williamson Park perched on a hill overlooking Morecambe Bay is full of surprises including a Butterfly House and the iconic Ashton Memorial folly, once described as the grandest monument in England.
From 3 July - 15 August, join the audience of the UK's biggest outdoor walkabout theatre experience and see Oliver Twist presented by the Dukes Theatre. Spend a relaxing night in one of the cities boutique B&Bs followed by a delicious breakfast made using locally produced food. Once revived and refreshed, hire bikes and head off to explore the historic harbour village of Glasson Dock or the stunningly beautiful Lune Valley, both accessed via off-road cycle routes. Lancaster is just over two hours by direct train from London and Glasgow.
