Carnforth is a town with a population of around 5,500 people a few miles to the north of Lancaster. There are a number of events that take place each year which attract locals and visitors alike. With interesting independent shops, cafes, pubs and hotels, the Brief Encounter Visitor Centre, there is much to do and see as well as Kitty Brown!
Glasson Dock is just south of Lancaster near the mouth of the River Lune. There are pubs and cafes to stop by and ample parking if you arrive by car. There is a footpath and cycle track that runs from Lancaster and this is a popular route from the city to the dock.
