Your guide to Lancashire

Lancashire at a glance:
  • An interesting county with a rich heritage and a variety of historic buildings.
  • Great for foodies, thanks to a variety of local specialities.
  • Beautiful countryside, including forests.
  • Traditional seaside holiday destinations, perfect for beach breaks.
  • Canals, walking trails and cycle paths to explore.

Immerse yourself in the distinctive character of the North, with a stay in the county of Lancashire. Hotels across the region each have their own unique personality, just like the holiday, short break and day trip destinations that you’ll visit during your time there. You can enjoy everything from the traditional seaside holiday experience in Blackpool or Morecambe to the historic Lancashire mill towns that symbolise Lancashire’s industrial past. Walk amongst the beautiful formal grounds of historic properties such as Samlesbury Hall, Astley Hall and Turton Tower, or go on a hike through the picturesque Forest of Bowland, where you’ll find the Bowland Wild Boar Park which is a particularly popular attraction for families with young children.

Lancashire’s speciality foods are just as diverse as the towns and villages that you’ll visit, which means that working up an appetite is never a bad thing! Hotpots, Lancashire sausages, Lancashire cheeses, butter pies, Eccles cakes and parched peas are just a few of the foods of Lancashire, available to buy from the shops or to order in many of the county’s friendly, welcoming and traditional pubs. The food of Lancashire tends to be hearty and satisfying – the perfect fuel for walks along the coast or out in the open hills. Meanwhile, for a refreshing drink consider a local ale at a Lancashire inn or a cocktail or glass of wine in one of the continental-style bars of artsy, bohemian Lancaster.

The Lancashire landscape is a tapestry of fields, towns, canals and trails, with canal boat hire being a popular choice for an activity to try on a holiday. Walks along the coast and through the countryside are perfect for those that love to explore, with some of the most popular routes being the Tolkein Trail and the hikes up Pendle Hill and Rivington Pike. In all seasons there are Lancashire walks that are perfect for beginners and for experienced hikers alike, which means that nobody needs to miss out on the spectacular views that are offered as rewards for those that cover the miles.

Your hotel in Lancashire, whichever you choose, can also be a base for visits to a much wider area. Consider day trips to Liverpool, to Manchester, to the Lake District and to the Peak District, all of which are within easy reach by car and by public transport. Easily accessible, packed with fantastic attractions and combining the best of country, coast, town and city, it’s easy to why Lancashire attracts tourists from not just elsewhere in the UK, but from countries all over the world.
