Williamson Park, Lancaster

Visit Williamson Park’s 54 acres of beautiful parkland and enchanting walks and play areas with breathtaking views to the Lake District. Step inside the tropical butterfly house, mini-beast enclosure, bird enclosure and small mammal area to meet some furry, scaly and feathered friends.

Then enjoy a snack in the Pavilion Café, visit our gift shop or visit the Ashton Memorial – a stunning stone tribute to industrialist Lord Ashton’s first wife.

The Park is also the venue for many events and festivals including concerts, exhibitions, guided walks and the Dukes Theatre’s outdoor performances.
