Lancaster Castle

See history come alive in the heart of Lancaster!

England’s dark history, with tales of persecution, incarceration, punishment and execution, has been lived out over the centuries within the confines of Lancaster Castle.

And now, after almost 1,000 years as an imposing and impenetrable place of penance, the castle’s magnificent John o’Gaunt gates have been swung open to unlock a veritable vault of intrigue, interest and interaction for visitors of all ages.
