Moving to Lancaster

Are you considering a move to Lancaster? Often called the “Brighton of the north”, you may not have the beach, promenade or pier, although you have them down the road at Morecambe. It has a university, which is considered to be one of the best and let’s not forget the nearby Dales for long mournful walks.

There are plenty and varied things to do in the city. A visit to the castle and taking part in a Dark History Tour should be high on your list. You can hear true tales from its darker past including ghosts, villains and murderers, some gruesome executions and the infamous witch trials of 1612. After the tour, a drink or two at the Ye Olde John O’Gaunt in Market Street might be in order. They serve an excellent range of beers: Moorhouses Pride of Pendle, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde and Copper Dragon Golden Pippin.
