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.

Hey mate, I’ll be going Lancaster in 2020. I think university is quiet diverse but Lancaster itself isn’t.

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.
