Retire to Lancaster


Lancaster Castle is one of the city’s most famous attractions and has in fact only been open to tourists since 2013. Despite being over 1,000 years old, the fortress area was still a functioning prison until recently, but is now a museum that offers a look at the history of the UK’s criminal justice system.

It might surprise you to know that Lancaster was once one of the country’s busiest ports and this history is detailed in the Maritime Museum. The River Lune which cuts through the city used to see daily fleets of tall ships coming in from the Atlantic, and in the stunning Georgian building which was once the customs house, you and the family could learn all about this interesting period in time.
