Lancaster Tourist Information


Rail - the train from London Euston to Lancaster is 2 hours 30 minutes, and from Manchester International Airport 1 hour 15 mins. Return journey tickets off-peak are usually the cheapest choice. You can check train times and book your rail tickets through National Rail or

Train travel from Paris/Brussels is also possible by switching in London from St Pancras International to Euston (10 minute walk). There are hourly trains from Euston to Lancaster (the West Coast Mainline).

Air travel - we suggest arrival into Manchester Airport as there are trains direct to Lancaster rail station from there. Although Liverpool John Lennon Airportoffers budget airline travel the rail links are less frequent and involve changes of bus and train.

Once in Lancaster you can take a taxi to your accommodation or there is a direct bus - X1 - from the rail station at regular intervals. The bus stop at the university is in the underpass and it is a 5-minute walk to Lancaster House hotel. Campus Map
