Lancaster is a fantastic city.
It has the heritage that few cities in the North of England can match, a superb arts scene anchored by two great theatres and a strong retail and leisure offer that has the potential to be even bigger. Lancaster BID works on behalf of all city centre businesses to further build the reputation of the city and help Lancaster become an even more attractive proposition for shoppers, tourists and people from within the district looking for things to see and do.
DINOSAURS - Sat 16th July 2022
Leighton Hall is very much a lived-in house rather than a stuffy museum, there are no roped-off areas and you won’t find anyone shouting 'don’t touch!' at your children! The Halls history is brought to life by the guides. Each room from the modest chapel to the imposing dining room is still used every day by the Gillow family.
With lots of funny and fascinating tales to reveal, the family’s ancestry means there are plenty of unusual pieces of furniture and paintings to enjoy.
DRAGON QUEST - 13th August
Travel in hand-painted carriages behind one of Yorkshire's Great Little Steam Trains at the narrow gauge Kirklees Light Railway.
