To sum up, in spite of Lancaster has some points that need to be amended, it is still a attractive tourist destination for both national and international visitors to have a wonderful leisure, especially for those visitors who are particular interested in natural landscape. 5 Strengths and Weaknesses The strengths of Lancaster should be mentioned, the famous landscape of Lancaster is The University of Lancaster, Lancaster castle, and Lancaster Canal. The weaknesses of Lancaster are that, the man-made attractions are not many enough, and the transports are not convincing for the visitors, and the weather is not good here. 6 Recommendation Lancaster city is quite nice. Lancaster city council is preparing the Lancaster district local plan. Once finished and adopted it will be the first local plan to apply to the whole of Lancaster district, and Lancaster city council is always keen to improve its services, such like the hotels, restaurants, and transportation. The government or city council should pay more attention on the attractions; create more man-made attractions or Leisure Park for the every age of people. ...read more.
