Things to do around Lancashire

Lancashire, a county in northwest England, offers a delightful mix of historical, cultural, and outdoor activities for a memorable day out. Whether you're interested in exploring ancient battlefields, stately homes, or enjoying scenic landscapes, there's something to suit every taste. Let's dive into some of the best things to do in Lancashire:

1. Cycling in Lancashire:
- Lancashire's amazing attractions and stunning landscapes are just asking to be explored by bike. There are miles of roads with very little or no traffic – perfect for cycling. You can join a cycling tour company for the guided route that is marked by the National Cycling Network, rent out a bicycle to select your own route, or just take your own. Cycling events are organized at Colne Grand Prix and Chorley Grand Prix, which make for a great day out in Lancashire for cycling enthusiasts.

2. Get Lost in the Forest of Bowland:
- The Forest of Bowland is the epitome of natural beauty. It’s one of the unique and most iconic things to do in the Lancashire countryside. The green woods, moorland, villages, and farms make the entire place a wonder to explore – and one of the greenest options for days out in Lancashire. You can skip the crowds and noise of the towns and cities to enjoy a relaxing, pleasant break in this picturesque area. Expect to see many rare birds and animal species here – don't forget your camera!.

3. See Historical Sites in Chorley:
- Chorley was one of the most famous cotton towns of Lancashire, with crowds of chimneys as part of its skyline. During the industrial revolution, this town faced rapid growth and became a popular market. The market still happens on Tuesdays, and you can buy delicious home-baked items from stalls. Don’t miss Astley Hall, which dates back to the 17th century. You can sit in its beautiful walled garden to catch some fresh air – it’s one of the most peaceful Lancashire days out on the list. Rivington Pike is another important attraction in Chorley; the sandstone peak is 363 meters high. Climb to the top and enjoy a fascinating view of the Moorland and Rivington Reservoir.

4. Relax in Lune Valley:
- The Lune Valley begins just a few minutes’ drive from Lancaster and borders the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Yorkshire Dales. Artists and writers love it here, and it features in the works of Wordsworth and Turner. Walk, cycle, or simply admire the Lune Valley on your day out in Lancashire – it’s one of the county’s top attractions.

5. Visit Lancaster:
- Explore the historic city of Lancaster. Visit Lancaster Castle, a medieval fortress with stunning views of the River Lune. Wander through the cobbled streets, visit local shops, and enjoy a meal at one of the city's restaurants. Don't miss the Lancaster Maritime Museum and the Ashton Memorial in Williamson Park.

6. Blackpool Pleasure Beach:
- For family fun, head to Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an amusement park with thrilling rides and Nickelodeon-themed attractions. Enjoy roller coasters, shows, and a lively atmosphere by the sea. Blackpool also offers its famous illuminations and a vibrant promenade.

7. Enjoy Lancashire Beaches:
- Lancashire boasts beautiful beaches. Visit Lytham St Annes for sandy shores, beach huts, and a charming promenade. Relax, take a dip, and soak up the coastal atmosphere. Other beach options include Morecambe Bay and Fleetwood.

Remember to check opening hours and any booking requirements for these attractions. Whether you're interested in history, nature, or family-friendly activities, Lancashire promises an enriching and diverse day out!
