The historic city of Lancaster offers great shopping and tempting restaurants as well as a famous castle, where you can enjoy an exciting tour of the courtrooms, cells and ancient towers. When you''ve finished at the castle, why not take a walk around the beautiful Williamson Park with its butterfly house and copper-topped Memorial.

You could head South to picturesque Lytham St Anne''s, or North to the massive expanse of Morecambe Bay. Don''t miss the chance to visit Carnforth Station to have a cup of tea in the cafe and play out your own version of ''Brief Encounter'' under the station clock.
