Come to Lancaster Castle for a truly unique experience.
Owned by the monarchy for over 600 years, this impressive and inspiring castle was used as a prison from the Middle Ages until very recently and is still used as a court. What better place to learn about history, from the Lancashire Witch Trials of 1612 to the riots of the 19th-century? This is a wonderful opportunity to see a courtroom and learn how the law has operated over the centuries.
This is history in the raw and in the making – plus it’s a lot of fun! See the castle courtyard, try to find your own name among the 600+ coats of arms hanging in the Shire Hall and spend some time as our ‘guests’ in the old cells for an experience not to be forgotten.
