Celebrate the long and fascinating history of Lancaster, Morecambe, and surrounding areas at Lancaster’s vibrant museums. The City Museum, Maritime Museum, Cottage Museum and the King’s Own Royal Lancashire Regiment Museum (which is located in the City Museum) are run by Lancaster City Council and there are also the very popular county-run Judges Lodgings and Lancaster Castle tours.
Highlights include the Maritime Museum, investigating Lancaster's Georgian maritime, river and canal heritage, the City Museum, set in Lancaster's 18th century former town hall, and the Judges' Lodgings, formerly home to infamous 17th century witch hunter Thomas Covell. For more information on Lancaster City Museums please see Visit Lancaster.
