London to Lancaster

by janetlee

I will fly to London Heathrow soon and will arrive at about 13:00. Can anyone advise me how can I get from the London Airport or downtown to Lancaster University? By coach or by train?

www.nationalrail.co.uk will give you train times and fares to Lancaster, www.nationalexpress.com will give you coach times and fares. The latter is cheaper, but usually takes much longer. I can't help with specifics about getting to the university from Lancaster itself, but the following sites may help:

www.stagecoachbus.com (local buses)
www.lancs.ac.uk/travel/timetables.htm (university info)
www.traveline.org.uk (general all-purpose journey-planner)

You should be able to travel from Heathrow without too many changes.

Lancaster Uni is about three miles south of Lancaster. Buses run regularly from Lancaster bus station which is a short walk from the train station. Also, there was a posting on "deals" involving coach travel from London to Lancaster for £5, recently.

Travel Tips for Lancaster

Forest of Bowland

by MartinSelway

The Forest of bowland is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It makes for a great Sunday drive out of Lancaster, perhaps to explore some of the villages, go for a pub lunch or a country walk.

The Forest of Bowland and Pendle Hill were designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in February 1964. The Pendle Hill section is geographically detached from the Forest of Bowland section but the two together share the title Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Forest of Bowland is the eleventh largest of the 40 designated AONB's in England and Wales, situated mainly in the county of Lancashire, part of the area does extend into North Yorkshire. The area is essentially upland country consisting of a plateau of rolling hills and moors which are dissected by deep valleys. In the north, Bowland consists of a block of gritstone moors extending from about 183M to 550M above sea level. In the south of the area the fells are more detached.

"lancaster castle"

Welcome to Lancaster Castle, often known as John O’ Gaunt’s Castle, which is one of the most historically interesting buildings in Lancashire.

Its beginnings date back to Roman times and from its commanding position on the hill overlooking the town of Lancaster and the River Lune, it stood as a bastion against the marauding forces of Picts and Scots.

Following the departure of the Romans in the 5th Century, it fell into disrepair and although in the 6th Century the Saxons made new fortifications on the site, no mention is made in the Domesday Book which suggests that it lay in ruins. After the Norman Conquest, however, Lancaster and the surrounding districts were given by William The Conqueror to Roger of Poitou in gratitude for his services in battle, and it was about this time that the Norman Keep, the heart of the original fortifications, was built.

Unfortunately, the Keep is part of the Castle which cannot be visited as it forms part of HM Prison Lancaster Castle.
