Living In Lancaster

Lancaster can be found to the north west of England, in the county town of Lancaster. It dates back to some time in 80 AD during the Roman invasion, and has a considerable history with the Romans, as well as the Normans. It took a while before the settlement of Lancaster started to grow, and it eventually received a charter in 1193. Over the years, Lancaster began to grow in stature, and in 1937, Lancaster was given city status. The Royal Family has strong ties to Lancaster, with the royally owned House of Lancaster being located there, as well as several large estates belonging to the Duchy of Lancaster.

Lancaster Castle is probably the most impressive landmark in the region, although its date of origin is unknown to this day, which gives it a great deal of mystique. The castle is perched over the River Lune and stretches all the way to Cumbria, while also passing through the Lune Aqueduct, which was built back in 1797. For those who want to immerse themselves within the history and culture of Lancaster, the Lancaster City Museum is the ideal place to visit, as it holds regular exhibitions, paintings and has numerous historical items dating back to the Roman era.
