The ancient city of Lancaster lies along the banks of the River Lune, just few miles away from the coast. It might be small, but the city packs some serious historical punch, with more attractions than you could possibly get through in just a weekend. You could dive into the city's seafaring past, go walking along the pretty towpaths that follow the canal or simply admire the honey-coloured Georgian architecture. If you're itching to shop, you won't be disappointed by the city centre, which is packed with independent boutiques and high street favourites. The student population keeps the city's creative side vibrant and active, and there are plenty of galleries, music venues and theatre productions to discover all year round. So, what are you waiting for? Lancaster bed and breakfasts are ready to welcome you.
While you could opt for one of the city's hotels, nothing beats the homely atmosphere and friendly welcome of the bed and breakfasts in Lancaster. Your veritable home away from home often comes in at a fraction of the cost of a hotel, too, leaving you plenty more cash to spend on the attractions and places to eat. You're not short of choices when it comes to B&Bs. Some are traditional family-run B&Bs which, charmingly, haven't changed all that much over the years. Others are housed in old stone cottages that ooze character and personality. If you'd prefer not to stay in the city, you could always opt for one of the B&Bs next to the coast, just a few miles away. Whichever you think will work for your break, you can always find your perfect match on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is search by budget, location and dates, scan through the properties and book in just a few clicks. Arranging your weekend break just got a whole lot easier.
After checking into your guestroom, you can settle in and start making use of the facilities, which often include things like a kettle for making hot drinks, a flat-screen TV on the wall and free WiFi, which you can use to plan your break. You might even find a desk and chair, perfect if you want to catch up on a few emails while you're away. All but the most budget options will have an ensuite bathroom, stocked with fresh towels and toiletries. Guestrooms come in all shapes and sizes, so you won't have any trouble finding a double, a twin, or even a family-sized room, if you want to bring the kids. You'll always know exactly what facilities you'll be getting when you book your accommodation through Expedia. Come daybreak, you can head downstairs to enjoy a full English breakfast, with veggie options available, too, of course. It's always worth taking some time to chat with the owners, many of whom have been running their B&Bs for years and are happy to offer advice on the best things to do and see nearby. If Lancaster doesn't sound right for your break, how about a few nights discovering Manchester activities instead?
The trickiest thing when staying in a Lancaster bed and breakfast is knowing what to do first. A good introduction to the city, particularly for newbies, is the hilltop castle, which dates back more than 1,000 years. Then there's Lancaster Canal, offering 43 miles of meandering waterways. You can go walking along the towpaths or take one of the daily pleasure cruises, which cross a magnificent Georgian aqueduct. History buffs shouldn't miss the Maritime Museum, where you can explore the city's seafaring past.
