History of Lancaster

Lancaster has a wide range of historic buildings, with many fine examples of Georgian Architecture. 

A Roman Fort was built in the 1st century on the hill where Lancaster Castle now stands.

Lancaster Castle is a medieval castle, its early history is unknown however it was a prison for centuries and it is thought that it was founded in the 11th century on the site of a roman fort. It was enlarged by Elizabeth I in the 13th Century. 

Lancaster Cathedral is also known as the Cathedral Church of St Peter founded in 1798, it was a Roman Catholic Parish Church until 1924, when it was then made into a cathedral. 

In 18112 Roman Baths were discovered, presumably there was a bathhouse that belonged to the 4th century fort. 

There is little known history of Lancaster between the end of the Roman Rule in the 5th Century and the Norman Conquest in the 11th Century. 

There is archaeological evidence suggesting there was a monastery near the site of Lancaster Priory by the 700s. 

Lancaster had gained its first charter in 1193 as a borough and market town and in 1937 it was given its City status. Many buildings in the City Centre date from the 19th century, due to the port becoming one of the busiest in the UK.
