Lancashire is located in North West England with the city of Preston acting as the administrative hub. It was first established as a county in the 12th century, so there is plenty of history ranging from the Middle Ages through to the Industrial Revolution.
Lancashire played an important role in the Industrial Revolution with the Lancashire Coalfield becoming some of the most productive throughout that period. Cotton also became an important export for the area.
In more recent history, Lancashire has become home to several large industrial companies and manufacturers including Fisherman’s Friend, several defence industry contractors, Hollands Pies and Enterprise plc.
As Lancashire is a reasonably large county there are plenty of attractions to find during your travels. Blackburn Cathedral, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Lancaster Castle, Blackpool Tower, Rivington Pike… the list is long.
Lancashire is also full of great walking routes from gentle, rambling tracks to longer and more challenging trails. From the lush countryside to rivers, woodlands or the coast, Lancashire has a beautiful and diverse landscape that is worth exploring.

Latest Lancashire parking reviews
Good communication. Perfect location. Cheap price. Will use this again if in LancasterPeter
Great place to leave the car. Tricky to get to if you’re not familiar with Lancaster as it’s mainly one way. Car was safe and there are electric charge points if requiredJackie
Great parking space location and very easy to find! Owner was lovely and helpful and I would 100% park here again. Only grip is, albeit out of the owners control, the space can be blocked by other drivers every now and again so it can be difficult to get in and out at times. No bother in asking them to move though.Danny
The location of the parking space is not clear from the information provided, although the photograph of it is accurate. I had no problem accessing it. We rang the owner to to locate the space but the message went to voice mail. I went to 5 Wheatfield. Luckily the owner was at home to direct me to the space.James
Very easy to find, instructions were clear and in a nice safe area! Felt very happy leaving my car there for a couple of days.Mia
The parking is located very close to the Castle, making it so convenient to get around town for a day trip in Lancaster. The parking slot itself may be a bit unclear to find, but I contacted the person mentioned in the booking confirmation to get explanations, and got a prompt response.Pierre
