Here at Old Hall Caravan Park, we are passionate about the beauty and excellence of the local area in which we are set. There is plenty to appreciate in the area surrounding our caravan park in Lancaster, and we are more than happy to advise you on some of the best places to visit. So let’s start by introducing you to the historic city of Lancaster.

Take a Tour of the Castle

Lancaster Skyline

Lancaster Castle is an impressive structure, towering over the city. It served as a prison as recently as 2011, so there is a rich history to discover within its walls. You can now take a tour of the castle and learn all about its dark and fascinating story.

The castle is open 7 days a week from 9.30am to 5pm and tours cost £8 for adults, £6.50 for concessions and you can buy a family ticket for £20.

Watch a Movie

Popcorn Movie Night

As with any city, Lancaster has a cinema featuring all the latest releases, but don’t miss out on the hidden gem – The Dukes. This unique venue offers theatre productions, comedy shows and film screenings. You can often find old, foreign and alternative movies being screened, so keep an eye on the events calendar for what’s coming up.

Enjoy a Walk in the Park

Ashton Memorial

Williamson Park is a stunning park area featuring the striking Ashton Memorial. The park is home to a butterfly house, ‘mini beasts and birds’ exhibit and, most recently, a ‘mob’ of meerkats. This is the perfect day trip for the whole family, with plenty to keep the children entertained as well as the adults!
