Walk on the Wild Side of Lancaster!


With a bumper crop of wild fruit for the picking thanks to our fab summer, what better time to try a Wild Food and Herbal Foraging Walk?

Join Julia Russell on a guided foraging walk from the Lancaster Castle Precinct via Vicarage Fields down to the historic St George's Quay to discover the edible and medicinal plants that grow in our area. It's an opportunity to explore plant properties, identification, preparation and look at historical uses and folklore.

Julia is a local herbalist with over 15 years in practice. A fully trained herbalist she also has a background in horticulture and other complementary therapies.

The walks are part of the Lancaster Castle Harvest Festival and will take place at 11.00 am - 12.30 pm and 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm (start and finish in the Lancaster Castle Courtyard).

Costs are £7.50 per adult, £2 for children up to 16.

To book contact Daniel.Holden@lancashire.gov.uk or 01772 530650 or book on the day.
