Williamson Park, Lancaster
(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Built in the early 1900s by resident millionaire James Williamson, Williamson Park provides a touch of nature in the middle of the city. In addition to a lake and waterfall, you’ll also find a cafe, sundial, cycle path, public toilets, and many walking trails. Enjoy the view across Morecambe Bay from Ashton Memorial--made in honor of Williamson’s wife--the highest point in Lancaster. The park is free, but pay a bit extra to visit the butterfly house, reptile house, and aviary. By using our Lancaster tourist route planner, you can arrange your visit to Williamson Park and other attractions in Lancaster.
