Village some 9 miles (15km) from Lancaster on the main A683 road to Kirkby Lonsdale.  Hornby is at the confluence of the Rivers Wenning and Lune.  Dominating the village is the privately owned Hornby Castle and it's grounds.  While there is no public access to the castle the gardens are occasionally opened to the public.
The Church of St. Margaret on the Main Street has an octagonal tower and hosts Parish Communion every Sunday at 10:45am.  Nearby is the Hornby Institute, housed in a Grade II Jacobean style building and is licenced for civil weddings.  The village also has an indoor swimming pool.
A mile (about 1.6km) to the north of Hornby Castle are the remains of Castle Stede, an earthwork motte-and-baily dating from around the 12th century.
An interesting feature noticable to travellers passing through the village is the watering trough with a curious sculpture of a cat and mouse situated where the main road makes a sharp turn at the bottom of the village.
