The Literary Lancaster two and a half mile walking tour takes you on journey into a range texts which have been inspired by the ancient city.
Did you know Wordsworth wrote a sonnet titled ‘Suggested by the View of Lancaster Castle’ or Charles Dickens used The Royal Hotel as a location for one of his stories?
This trail will take you on a journey around Lancaster’s famous literary hotspots, including The Royal Kings Arms on Market Street where Charles Dickens and fellow author Wilkie Collins stayed in 1857, and which inspired ‘The Lazy Tour of two Idle Apprentices’. The now Royal Hotel is opposite The Storey Gallery, home to Lancaster LitFest and a very short walk from Lancaster Castle itself.
