Top Places to Visit in Lancashire
With wild, romantic countryside and a breathtaking coastline of wave-swept bays, big sky views and vintage seaside resorts, a holiday in Lancashire will provide a destination that is packed with variety and top-class family entertainment.
Morecambe is a must-see, with a lively promenade, lip-smacking fish and chips and arguably the finest sunsets England has to offer. Lancashire holidays wouldn't quite be completed without a visit to Blackpool, a city that is renowned for its bustling nightlife, seaside attractions and thrill rides.
Lancashire's past is often fascinating and sometimes dark. Visit Lancaster Castle (until recently one of Europe's oldest prisons) and hear tales of the Pendle Witches as you explore its chilling towers, cells and courtroom.

The resort of Blackpool is also under an hour’s drive away if you fancy a change of scenery or a trip up the famous tower.
History & Culture
The ancient city of Lancaster is brimming with historical sites, from the medieval castle that dominates the city’s skyline to the elegant early 20th century Ashton Memorial that offers beautiful views over Williamson Park across Morecambe Bay.
For a taste of eerie mystery, the Barrows up on Heysham headland feature stone graves from the 11th century and a ruined Anglo-Saxon chapel.
Lancashire's Historic and Cultural Attractions

Local Towns & Tours in Lancashire
Watching the sunset over Morecambe Bay is one of the most beautiful sights you could hope to see on the west coast of the UK. On a clear day, you can even make out the faint outline of the Isle of Man, and of course the dramatic natural skyline of the Lake District.
Further inland, the Ribblehead Viaduct at Ingleton is well worth a visit, as it’s a stunning example of Victorian engineering set in a dramatic landscape.
