The Shakespeare (Bed and Breakfast)
96 St. Leonards Gate,
Lancaster LA1 1NN
The Shakespeare is the last survivor of a dozen
Inns and Taverns that lined the ancient route of St Leonards Gate
into the city of Lancaster. It serviced the shipyards and their associated
maritime industries when Lancaster was a bustling sea port at the
end of the 18th Century, together with the travellers and coaching
services moving up and down the country for whom a stop at Lancaster
was essential until the advent of railways made a night's stop less
of a necessity.
'The Shakespeare Tavern' features in business registers and church
records of the Georgian era, and the name reflects the early importance
of the Grand Theatre, (now the third oldest working theatre in the
country) which first opened across the road in 1782, and where Mrs
Sarah Siddons performed in many of the Shakespearean tragedies (and
where her ghost has lived on ever since).
Today The Shakespeare is a rather more sedate seven-roomed Bed and
Breakfast, close to the heart of Lancaster's city centre, with the
Grand and Dukes' theatres within two minutes walk and a dozen excellent
eating places within five minutes on foot. For those visiting Lancaster
University the main Bus Station is less than three minutes walk and
the Railway Station within ten minutes of the city's pedestrianised
centre. For over two centuries
The Shakespeare has aimed to make every guest's stay as pleasant and
as comfortable as possible, and the same tradition is carried forward
today as strongly as ever. • Stayed here? Send
us a review! Andrea from the Czech republic (June 2009): I would like to recommend The Shakespeare to anybody looking for comfortable and clean accommodation with the best care you can get. Sally and Fred are endlessly helpful, they provide fantastic and large breakfast including fresh fruit salad and arrange all they can to make your stay as benefitial as possible.
(ráda bych tento hotel doporučila i všem českým navštěvníkům, najdete zde příjemné, čisté prostředí a vynikající přístup majitelů)
Michal Lancaster (Nov 2007): A wonderful stay!!! Not only was the room VERY comfortable but the owners were the most wonderful hosts!! A+ on the breakfast and Tea upon arrival was wonderful! A great value within walking distance of just about everything! Highly recommend this B&B. M&M Carlston (October 2007): In a nutshell: GO! We have just spent another five lovely days at The Shakespeare and we loved it. Fred and Sally do a fabulous job of making sure you are well fed, well rested, and well educated on all the sights of Lancaster. The locale is convenient to bus, trains and taxi as well as major motorways. Lancaster is a wonderful place to explore and The Shakespeare is our favorite. Thanks for our lovely visit from the crazy Californians. As in the words of our infamous governor, ”we’ll be back”…… Dmitry Podolsky (October 2007): For russian-speaking students, professionals etc. visiting Lancaster: I would highly recommend to stay at Shakespeare B&B. Отель маленький, ОЧЕНЬ уютный, над всем витает специфический дух викторианской Англии. Хозяева – милейшие люди, исключительно гостеприимны (пример – я должен был уезжать рано утром, около , вечером хозяйка принесла мне на подносе завтрак, дабы я не чувстовал себя голодным в дороге :)) Вообще завтрак достоин отдльного упоминания – все замечательно вкусно и предлагается в таких количествах, что вам этого завтрака может хватить до вечера. Был вполне учтен тот факт, что я – вегитарианец. В общем и целом можно сказать, что уровень сервиса непривычно высокий для B&B.
Bottom line: next time I’ll be visiting Lancaster, I’ll stay in Shakespeare B&B.
(Ed: here's theBabelfish computerised translation of that: "The hotel small, VERY comfortable, above all soars the specific spirit of Victorian England. Masters - mileyshiye people, it is exceptionally hospitable (example - I had to leave early in the morning, near, in the evening mistress it brought to me on the tray breakfast, in order to 4 not chuvstoval itself hungry in the road:) Generally breakfast is worthy otdl'nogo reference - everything noticeably tastefully and is proposed in such quantities, which to you this breakfast can be sufficient to the evening. Was completely taked into account the fact that 4 - vegitarianets. By and large it is possible to say that the level of service is unusually high for B&B."
Janine Ring (July 2006): For all German, Austrian and Swiss students looking for an accommodation in
Das Shakespeare ist das schönste B&B in dem ich jemals übernachtet habe. Es
hat alle Annehmlichkeiten die man sich wünschen kann und überzeugt besonders
mit einem opulenten englischen Frühstück. Ich fühle mich bei Sally und Fred
immer wie zu Hause und kann es nur jedem international student ans Herz
legen, der auf der Suche nach einer guten Übernachtungsmöglichkeit in
The Old Station House B&B
25 Meeting House Lane, Lancaster LA1 1TX
01524 381060 Mike Waitling (December 2006) writes: have stayed in Lancaster a couple of times before & tried to check into the old station house, mainly because of the car park - car parking in Lancaster is a nightmare. But this is the first time I have managed to stay – it’s always been full. We stayed for 2 nights and we loved it! I was greeted by Andrea (whom I later discovered was the proprietor) she was really friendly and welcoming and told us where to go and not to go in Lancaster (always handy). The room was really comfy and cosy just what we needed after our long drive. Spotlessly clean with nice personal touches. Warm soft towels, plenty soaps, shampoo’s etc. Everything that you need for a perfect stay. The breakfast was massive, all you could imagine and plenty of it. Even porridge, fresh fruit, yoghurt etc. Brilliant! I was a little worried about the location. As the name implies it is the old stationmaster's house (obviously near the train station). But I only actually heard one train, which just shows you how bad the UK train system is I guess!! (maybe it was the 2 foot thick walls). I would definitely recommend it. I can see why it was always full when I tried to stay before. I think we fell lucky this time as we just called at the door and they had vacancies – next time I will book in advance! • Stayed here?

Langthwaite Road, Scotforth, Lancaster LA1 3JJ
Tel: 01524 841336 Reiner, Heike and Daniela (13) Plass (Feb 2008): We stayed at West View Farm Bed and Breakfast for a week in early Feb. 2008. The place is well-managed, the owners are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast is simply great, rooms are comfortable and the heating was sufficient even with temperatures below 0 outside (heated beds - very nice!!). With a car you are in town in no time at all, easy to approach when taking the Lancaster South exit of the M6, you don't have to cross town that way. Claire Potter (July 2006) writes: If you have your car with you (or can afford to pay for taxis), this is a great B & B to stay at - especially if you have children with you. It is in a farmhouse on the edge of Lancaster in a lovely rural setting. In fact, it is a classic "Old MacDonalds" farm with some of each type of animal: a bull, cows, horses, foals, sheep, goats, and chickens. The owners were friendly and relaxed and allowed my son to wander around the farm, pet the foals, etc. The rooms were large and comfortable (in an old-fashioned kind of way) and the breakfast was plentiful and cooked perfectly. I highly recommend it. • Stayed here? Send

Cafe open 9.30am-4.30pm daily, except Mondays (closed)
Friendly family run farm, cafe and very pretty campsite with stunning views across the bay. Chickens roam around contentedly and white doves roost along the eaves of the old barn. The cafe serves a range of delicious homemade dishes, several of them from their own organic salt-marsh reared lamb and free-range eggs (which are also for sale here). There's a children's animal area with resident pigs Rodney and Cassandra, pigmy goats, rabbits and baby lambs and calves in Springtime. Well worth a visit on a sunny (or rainy) day - it's a lovely cycle ride along the canal and seashore from Lancaster (about 6 miles).
