A short bus or cycle ride will take you from our campus into the heart of historic Lancaster – a city full of character and culture. There’s everything you’d expect from a modern city with a thriving arts scene, a busy nightlife, beautiful parks and a castle dating back almost 1000 years. By day, a strong ‘coffee culture’ vibe runs throughout the city, with the Atkinson’s roaster wafting its aroma onto China Street, and many cafés dotted throughout the cobbled streets. The city boasts a wonderful mix of restaurants offering a host of different cuisines, including a Japanese sushi bar, Mexican, French and Spanish restaurants to vegan eateries. Lancaster’s nightlife buzzes with live music at the many pubs and wine bars within the city, situated along the banks of the canal, through the Georgian streets and even underneath the city in the castle’s former wine cellars.
