Hello to all of my virtual friends! I just wanted to tell you all about my trip to Lancaster. As you all know, Lancaster is located in Lancashire County and it has a lot of things to offer to its visitors. Together with a group of old class mates, we decided that we take a few days off from work and visit not only Lancaster, but also Morecambe, Middleton, Preston and Blackpool. We split the group in two, checking in at Penny Street Bridge (Penny Street) and at Royal Kings Arms Hotel (75 Market Street). We rented one of those comfortable minibuses for transportation and also requested a wheelchair taxi, as we had a person with special needs traveling with us.
If you love castles, then you must see the Lancaster Castle. I have seen many castles in my life but I have to say that this was, by far, one of the most beautiful. We took a lot of photographs and created many wonderful memories. We also visited the Lancaster Cathedral, which is an interesting architectural piece. Needless to say, we took a lot of photos here as well, as we are all amateur photographs. Late at night, we returned to our hotels in executive cars, as we wanted to feel like we were important.
Between Lancaster and Gatwick airport, I traveled with an airport taxi. The 276 miles journey with the taxi cab lasted for 4 hours and 20 minutes and I paid around £480. The rest of the group traveled from Lancaster to Blackpool with a minibus; the 34 miles distance was covered in 41 minutes and they paid around £236. As I was traveling by myself, I stopped on the road at The Crown Hotel (545 King Street, Stoke-on-Trent) and The Woking Hotel (Chertsey Road, Woking). I also dined at fine restaurants, such as Kismet (1A Queen Street, Stoke-on-Trent) and London House (134 High Street).
