Happy Lancashire Day!

Lancashire Rose, the heraldic device of the House of Lancaster

Did you know today is Lancashire Day?

It commemorates the day in 1295 when Lancashire sent its first representatives to Parliament by King Edward I of England to attend what later became known as The Model Parliament.

Lancashire Day was first observed in 1996 with the loyal toast to “The Queen, Duke of Lancaster”, and is open to celebration from everywhere within the county.

At Lancaster House we are so proud to be apart of Lancashire that we feature the red rose of Lancashire in the hotels logo, the heraldic device of the House of Lancaster.

Who is having Lancashire Hotpot tonight?
