Lancaster Castle Guided Tours

Why not take a tour around one of the UK’s most significant historic monuments? With origins dating all the way back to the Romans, this fascinating collection of buildings has been a centre for justice, incarceration and penal reform for almost 1,000 years.

Join knowledgeable and friendly tour guides and be taken through tales of witchcraft, religious persecution, crime and punishment, rehabilitation and release throughout the ages. You might even get to stand in the dock, raise your left hand to be sworn in, and learn the true meaning of being ‘sent down’.


Adults – £8

Concessions – £6.50

Family – £20 (family tickets are flexible: two adults and up to any two concessions or one adult and any three concessions)

Tours run regularly, throughout the day, from 10.30am (10am at weekends) until 4.00pm.
