The spectacular mountains of the Lake District form a beautiful backdrop for the University of Lancaster. The main location of the University is just on the southern outskirts of the city of Lancaster, and about three miles from the city center. A short walk eastward from the campus leads to open countryside and the rolling greens of England's backyard. The campus is set on 250 acres of landscaped area and on a clear day the outlook extends north to the Lakeland fells and west across Morecambe Bay. The historic city of Lancaster is just ten minutes by bus from the university. It is a friendly, bustling city which has all the amenities of a large city without having lost its charm and character. Lancaster is a modern city of about 50,000 people with a theatre, concerts, literary festivals, international restaurants, 54 pubs, and a warm, friendly atmosphere. The university is very much a part of the city of Lancaster.
