CEH's Lancaster site is based within the campus of Lancaster University and forms part of the Lancaster Environment Centre. The site was opened in 2004 and has state-of-the-art laboratories, controlled-environment greenhouses and many other research facilities. CEH also retains use of the unique fish-holding facilities and hatcheries at Lake Windermere.

The work carried out at Lancaster is part of CEH's interdisciplinary science research capacity, supported by the Environmental Information Data Centre.
