The convenience of these services makes The Shakespeare an ideal base for day trips to the Lake District, or enjoying the easier walking along the Lancaster Canal, besides visiting Williamson Park and Lancaster's City and Maritime museums. The Shakespeare offers 2 single, 2 twin and 3 double rooms at prices from £35 per person per night including a full Lancashire breakfast.
