The historic city of Lancaster is a fantastic day trip for the whole family. Best of all, it is only a short drive from both of our Lancashire parks. There’s a busy city centre with plenty of shops for a little retail therapy. Head to one of the independent coffee shops for a drink and a bite to eat, then take in some history on a Lancaster Castle tour where you can learn about the city’s history with witches. You can then venture down to the quay and visit the Maritime Museum. Once you’re finished, walk up to Williamson Park where the kids can enjoy the park as well as the mini zoo and butterfly house.
