Explore Lancaster and discover some of its many gems of the Georgian Period.
Lancaster's skyline changed dramatically in the Georgian period. As business prospered, this quiet market town was being transformed and expanded.
New roads were laid out and buildings sprang up to serve growing businesses, provide suitably elegant housing and to support flourishing public life. This period is often called Lancaster's Golden Age.
After 200 years of further development, Lancaster's Georgian heart has been surrounded and encroached upon. It is easy to miss the impact of the concentrated period of growth in the 18th Century. This guide highlights a handful of sites, all within easy walking distance, that give a glimpse of that time.
