History

小到可以徒步探索, you can follow the stories of Lancaster’s rich history all the way back to the 12th Century. 作为英格兰的传统城市之一, 每个角落都有历史, from the conviction of the Lancaster Witches in 1612 to Charles Dickens’ hotel room!

Castle

可以追溯到近1000年前, Lancaster Castle is still owned by Her Majesty the Queen, 谁是OG真人官网版APP下载公爵. 同时也是防御工事, its courtrooms have witnessed many famous trials over the centuries, including those of the Lancashire Witches who were convicted and sentenced to death in 1612.

Market

开始于1193年, the traditional bi-weekly Charter Market fills the cobbled streets with the aromas of international and local food, offering everything from fresh produce to books and jewellery.

Pendle女巫小道

The Trail of the Pendle Witches is about 45 miles along the lonely road the Pendle Witches took through the Ribble Valley to Lancaster Castle where they stood trial in 1612.

"I really love being surrounded by history in Lancaster. When you walk around you can feel it in the atmosphere and there is always something interesting to learn about where you are. My favourite thing to do is go up to the castle to do my course reading, there is a really nice view out across the bay and it is so much nicer than just sitting at my desk. I almost always stop at the coffee quarter on the way there too – it’s a really lovely city to be in." Katie Barnes, English Literature and Spanish Studies
