Lancaster is one of the forgotten cities of North West England. A city with a historic past, Lancaster was home of the Red Rose during the War of the Roses involving the houses of Lancaster and York. Lancaster found fortune during the Industrial Revolution, particularly as a centre for textiles, and much of the modern centre of Lancaster was built at this time, though there are still reminders of past eras, including 13th century Lancaster Castle.
Nearby attractions include the picturesque Lune Valley, and Morecambe Bay.
Lancaster is easily accessible via the M6 Motorway.
National Express and regional operators run direct services between Lancaster and a range of major cities.
Ferries from nearby Heysham Ferry Terminal travel to the Isle of Man.
Options include the good and cheap Sultan of Lancaster in a building which has served as both a church and a mosque (Muslim so no alcohol served), and the popular Meeting House.

Post boxes can be found at any post office and standalone large red post boxes on the streets or red boxes in the sides of public buildings.
