Welcome To Portland Street - Portland Street is situated on the south side of Lancaster. It's minutes walk to the city centre and the hospital, bus stops for the universities and cycle lanes. This historic city has a cafe culture, theatre and cinema, as well as literature and music festivals. The house is ten minutes walk to the mainline station and you can be in Manchester in an hour. The Lake District is half an hour away. Lancaster Canal is just at the end of the road. From here you can enjoy quiet, relaxing walks out to the countryside or watch as the boats go by. A great place to feed the ducks. The community orchard is nearby too with an opportunity to walk the fields with the flora and fauna and rare breed cattle or maybe you'll just want a quiet pint at the pub on the towpath.
