Lancaster Mini Guide

The closest airport is Manchester, about an hour away from the city.  The castle is the best place to start when touring the city and is the quintessential English castle.  From there, take a short trip in your hire car to the Ashton Memorial, a magnificent folly, presented by Lord Ashton to Lancaster as a memorial to his wife.
