With its longstanding ties to the British monarchy and an outstanding cultural history, Lancaster is the settlement which lends its name to the surrounding county of Lancashire, and plays host to the widely respected research centre of Lancaster University. Positioned amongst the top 1% of Universities in the world, this dynamic educational hub continues to be consistently ranked as the best university in the North West of England.
Lancaster itself retains a great deal of its historical architecture through the exquisite Georgian examples of the Priory Church of St. Mary, Lancaster Castle and the Edwardian Ashton Memorial, whilst also blending modern entertainment and an undeniably contemporary culture. Yorkshire House, Lancaster Grand Theatre and Dukes, are all thriving venues for live music, whilst numerous festivals ensure exciting summers for local residents.
An eclectic landscape provides Lancaster students with plenty of outdoor thrills on their doorstep. Whether seeking the coast, the countryside or the city, Lancaster can place you in the middle of a hustling metropolis, as easily as it can send you out to sea. Many gardens can be found in the local vicinity, and whether searching out the City Museum or the Gregson Community and Arts Centre, all can be enjoyed amongst spectacular surroundings.
Student nightlife is modest, yet heavily punctuated with a strong student ambience. Savings can be found left, right and centre during term months, and there are plenty of choices to ensure a great night out for all. Lancaster may not host the sheer number of clubs, bars and pubs as the likes of its nearest city competitors, but Hustle, Toasts, The Lounge, Liquid and The Sugarhouse will add plenty of choice to the usual bundle of cheesy club nights on offer.
