About The Venue

Lancaster Castle, alternatively known as John O’ Gaunt’s Castle, is a Grade 1 Listed Building. It is a historical monument and building found at the heart of Lancaster on a hill overlooking part of the city. It is part of the Duchy of Lancaster and has been the site of many historical events with its chronology spanning back over 1000 years. Because of its historical beauty, significance, and grandeur the castle is popular both as a tourist destination and as an event venue. For instance, Lancaster Castle is the host site of the Heritage Open Days. 

Lancaster Castle has quite an impressive history. While the precise date of the founding of the building is debatable, it has been around since the 11th century at the least. The building has been used over the centuries for many purposes including an event venue. The Castle is composed of several buildings built over the course of the site’s history. These include for instance the Keep, the Gatehouse, the Governor’s House, and others. Of these buildings, the Keep is the oldest part according to analysis.
