Fun Facts
  • You know it's like the Hunger Games out there at Lancaster University, especially during the end of the term time and the exam season. The level of desperation is always high for study seats. Who can blame them when the library is full of computers, laptops and all the books you need.
  • You're not going to believe your own eyes once you get to this city with its own little town charm. And if you haven't been to the stunningly beautiful Lake District, you're missing out. Head down on a sunny day and enjoy the fresh air that is oh-so-rare in the surrounding big cities.
