About Lancaster

Lancaster Comics Day takes place in Lancaster Library in Lancaster’s Market Square, five minutes walk from both the train and bus stations. There are a number of car parks nearby which we have identified on our Lancaster Comics Day map.

If you are planning on staying over the weekend, there are a number of hotels nearby. The closest are the Kings Arms and the Sun Hotel (the latter gets booked very quickly). There is also a Travel Lodge in the city centre and a number of guest houses further afield.
