A bus ride to Lancaster

Tuesday 15th March 2016

Another beautiful day, mild and sunny.

One of the few benefits of being "older", or old, depending on your point of view, is, having a Concessionary Bus Pass!

So, a "free" bus ride the ten miles or so, to Lancaster.

A typical " UK city" day out by our standards: 

  • the obligatory look around exactly the same shops as we have in Newcastle.
  • a very pleasant lunch, with a bottle of Rioja to wash it down. 
  • a bit of culture (in the form of a visit to the Castle and Priory)
  • a bit of exercise, with a walk along the banks of the River Lune as far as the Lune Aquaduct, carrying the Lancaster Canal over the river.


  1. Just found your website. I live in Kenya but Lancaster is my hometown so its interesting to see a visitors perspective. I am also planning a campervan trip myself to start in May!!

    1. Pleased you enjoyed it. Hope the May trip goes well!
