Walking Directions from the Underpass (Main Bus Stop) to Lancaster Arts


By bicycle

Plan your bicycle route:

Lancaster is a Cycling Demonstration Town which means it is benefitting from increased investment in facilities and initiatives for cyclists. It takes 20 - 30 minutes to cycle from the city centre to campus. An off-road cycle route runs from Whinfell Drive in Hala and enters the campus near Bailrigg House. A further off-road signed cycle route runs along the Lancaster Canal to the city centre.
