Lancaster refers both to the ancient county town of Lancashire and the City of Lancaster, in which the town sits alongside other areas such as Morecambe, Carnforth and the Lune Valley. Lancaster is situated in the far north of Lancashire. Near neighbours include the western edges of Yorkshire - England's largest county - and the southern reaches of Cumbria, where the beguiling Lake District draws throngs of visitors. Lancaster is therefore well placed for many adventures in the great outdoors of England's north. But before you head off for other popular holiday destinations, stay a little longer in Lancaster and discover the intriguing history of the city and the other exciting districts.

Take a look around Lancaster - its past is etched on numerous buildings of architectural and historical importance. You can visit stunning medieval Lancaster Castle; St George's Quay on the River Lune, where trading has been taking place for centuries; see what lies beneath the towers of the cathedral and the priory; or feel the love at the Ashton Memorial, which was built by Lord Ashton around 100 years ago as a tribute to his late wife. Rainy days are made bearable with a good choice of museums that showcase more of Lancaster's history. 

There are convenient locations in the downtown area at which you can pick up your hire car. To find the best deals on car rental, enter your requirements into the search tool on TravelSupermarket and compare prices from a range of providers.
