Lancaster

Lancaster is a small but vibrant university city full of historic buildings. From Roman ruins to the Norman Castle which dominates the skyline to the impressive Georgian Quay and late Victorian Ashton Memorial, there's something for everyone.

There's plenty to see and do to fill a day trip (including tours and museums, theatres and cinemas) with some great pubs and restaurants (try St George's Quay for somewhere to eat and drink) 

Morecambe

Stand on the prom in Morecambe and be prepared to be stunned by the sheer beauty of the bay with the Lake District providing a breath-taking backdrop.

The world famous art deco Midland Hotel reopened in spring 2008 and, along with public art, sandy beaches and the spectacular view, it's attracting the tourists once more.

The bay is an area of outstanding natural beauty and is a haven for bird watchers and anglers and there are several festivals held in the town throughout the summer. It's well worth a day out!

Heysham

Nestled in a rocky outcrop in Morecambe Bay is the quaint village of Heysham with its small tea rooms and its slightly spooky carved stone coffins next to one of the oldest chapels in the country.

A unique little village that's well worth a visit, especially if you're looking to take in one of those famous Morecambe Bay sunsets.

The Lune Valley

The sweeping, meandering Lune River valley is a stunning rural idyll that's been painted by artists such as Turner. It boast lots of small, pretty villages like Wray and there's plenty of country walks to enjoy. The Crook of Lune is a famous picnicking spot that's well worth a visit and during the summer.

The Forest of Bowland

The Forest (or Trough) of Bowland is a little known area of outstanding natural beauty - a mixture of moorland and wooded glades. Famous for it's birdlife (especially curlews, lapwings and hen harriers) there are plenty of walks, some great pubs and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors.

Arnside and Silverdale

Just 10-15 minutes from Low Greenlands is another area of outstanding natural beauty on the Morecambe Bay coast - Arnside and Silverdale. A distinct landscape made up of limestone pavements, ancient woodland and coastal scenery, it's famous for its flowers and butterflies so is a must for nature lovers. What's more, it's quiet and unspoilt with all the crowds heading further north to the Lake District. Truly an undiscovered gem!

The Lake District

Just 15 miles north of Low Greenlands and you're in Kendal - an historic market town that's the gateway to the Lake District. In less than 30 minutes you could be following in the footsteps of Wordsworth and walking the world famous fells and hills. Ambleside and Windermere attract most of the tourists but there's so much to see, do and enjoy that you're spolit for choice.

Ingleton and Kirkby Lonsdale

Just a few miles to the east and Lancashire becomes Yorkshire with the delightful town of Kirkby Lonsdale sittiing on the border. With picture postcard streets scenes, superb shops and restaurants, it's a fantastic place to spend the afternoon or evening. Just a little further is Ingleton, a unique village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales with stunning scenery and the UK's finest waterfalls walk. White Scar Caves - the biggest in the UK - is another attraction in this area that's well worth a look.
