Hey so are there many muslims in Lancaster? I'm only asking because I am muslim from a very diverse city and just curious as I might study there. Also, is it a diverse city? Also, can you name interesting places to visit in or near Lancaster. I know it's not very well known.
Thanks.

Not sure on the diversity and how many numbers, but my daughters going this year and currently chatting to people of all cultures in her study subject on line, there's about 50 in her physics group so far of all cultures
You have the lakes, Morecambe sea front, Ashcroft memorial, Lancaster castle, St Nics arcade and Marketgate with the shops. A lot of students like the train to Preston/Manchester and also trip up to Edinburgh too. Then there are the canal ways you can walk. A lot of the students live in the city too.

Hi Anon,
The town is definitely not the most diverse place, and the majority of diversity does come from the university students, which is particular has a large international community. Although it may not be as diverse as you're used to, I don't think it will be difficult to connect with other muslim students at all, particularly through the Islamic Society or in the Islamic prayer spaces.
In terms of places to visit, the essentials are:
- Williamson Park
- Lune Aqueduct
- Morecambe Bay
- Preston/Manchester (for restaurants and shopping)
- Day trip to Lake Windemere (you can even hire boats).
Give them all a quick Google. There's a lot more than that but those are the must sees!
Hope this is useful and let me know if you have anymore questions or anything I can help you with.

Hi there,

The university itself is quite diverse with an established Islamic Society on Campus. As one of the execs, I can definitely say you will definitely not be alone (there's over 100 members, including PhD students with families living with them).

With regards to places to visit, there's Morecambe Bay and the Lake District - both not too far outside of Lancaster. Inside Lancaster, there's Williamson Park, Lancaster Castle and St Nics Arcade.

If you need any more information about the ISOC or any general questions - feel free to message me or email me (whatever you prefer); you can also contact us via. Instagram @Lancsisoc.

Lancaster is not a very diverse city, but there is a small Muslim community. There is a mosque on Dallas Road, I think.
