Whether this was entirely down to our wonderful tour guide, Caren, who was absolutely superb or whether we were lucky with the weather a race event and a great bunch of folk on the tour, but we thoroughly enjoyed this little experience. Full of witty stories, mass's of historical information, a teeny weeny bit of gore ( all checked out beforehand with the parents l hasten to add) and a wander round court rooms, cells, castle rooms etc. Well worth every penny in my opinion - certainly worth it!

This landmark building in Lancaster's historic quarter, home to travelling assize judges until 40 years ago is a fine Georgian specimen and houses a fabulous collection of Gillow furniture. Local authority cutback placed this museum under threat of closure in 2016 but discussions are now underway for a community-led charity to be formed to keep the museum going and exploit its full potential. A reminder that Georgian elegance can be found outside London and that English furniture craftsmanship.

Booked this tour on line and we were very impressed by this amazing building. A stunning building which notes he opulence spent on town buildings in the past. This multifunctional building which is still very much in use today is a must see in this city. We have visited several times but cannot imagine why we have never been here. Very enthusiastic staff. Who are clearly happy in their work.they do a little trail for kids to follow.
