Lancaster Station

Lancaster train station serves the city of Lancaster in the northwest of England, which sees over 2 million passengers travelling to or from the station every year.

The station was opened in 1846, and was originally known as ‘Lancaster Castle Station’ to distinguish it from Lancaster Station which already existed in the city (although it closed down in 1849). The station was remodelled between 1900 and 1906, adding new lines and buildings which were created in a mock Elizabethean style to mirror Lancaster Castle, which lies less than half a mile from the station. The station was renamed ‘Lancaster Station’ in 1969.

It’s just a few minutes walk from the main shopping area in Lancaster, and is close to plenty of hotels, bars and restaurants. A good public transport service makes it easy to get around the city, with bus connections to the station as well as a taxi rank and car park attached. You can also travel to Lancaster Station on two wheels, as there is plenty of bike storage, both covered and uncovered.

Within the station itself, you’ll find seated waiting areas, a choice of shops and cafes, and accessible toilet facilities, as well as customer service points, so whether you have a question about your journey or simply want to relax before your train, you’ll find what you need in Lancaster Station.
