Lancaster Castle

Lancaster Castle

Owned by his Majesty King Charles III as 'Duke of Lancaster' this fascinating Grade 1 listed building has dominated Lancaster for almost 1000 years and is one of the best preserved and hardest working castles in the country. See the place where the Lancashire Witches were convicted and condemned to die. Experience the dungeons and imagine what it was like to have been imprisoned there. Visit the Crown Court where thousands of convicts were transported to Australia and then marvel at the beautiful Gillow furniture in the Grand Jury Room and the famous display of heraldry in The Shire Hall.

Theatrical and musical evenings

Lancaster Castle also has a regular programme of theatrical and musical evenings for which early booking is highly recommended.
