Taste your way around Lancashire

Ribble Valley, Lancashire

Your tastebuds will come alive in this food-loving county – sample fantastic produce and dishes (many royally approved) and enjoy a local ale.

From Lancashire Cheese to Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps – holders of a Royal Warrant – through to the county's signature dish, Lancashire hotpot (a tantalising combination of lamb, potatoes and vegetables) you’ll want to make an itinerary just based around eating! Not to mention the many delicious ales named after local legends, nature and even witches. 

Start your culinary adventure at Hoghton Tower, a 16th century manor house where King James I knighted a cut of Lancashire Beef – naming it Sir Loin. Dine at Northcote, Lancashire’s Michelin-starred restaurant, and try the locally sourced menu, including the famous Lancashire hotpot. There are high-quality dining pubs in the surrounding countryside including the Parkers Arms in the Forest of Bowland and the Freemasons country inn in Wiswell, VisitEngland’s Tourism Pub of the Year. 

Lancashire is in northwest England, around 250 miles (400 km) from London, and 60 miles (97 km) from Manchester.
