TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

9th June 2015

Lancaster Castle the very best in the business says TripAdvisor

Lancaster Castle has again been awarded a coveted Certificate of Excellence by the worlds largest travel site TripAdvisor. The Award, which can only be earned by consistently positive reviews by travellers and visitors, states that Lancaster Castle (has been) recognised by customers as one of the very best in the business. In October 2014, Lancaster Castle was also awarded Visit England's "Best Told Story" accolade which, according to the citation, is an honour awarded for particularly innovative and effective interpretation or tour, telling the story to capture visitors' imaginations.

Since 2013, the Duchy of Lancaster has supported a wide variety of community based events and entertainments within the Castle walls, including a music festival, promenade theatre shows, Armed Forces Day, historical re-enactments and even a series of Ghost Tours. A full programme of guided tours, a licensed café within the courtyard and a gift shop selling Castle memorabilia are available to visitors all year round.
