Lancashire

Visit Lancashire for a true taste of olde England and a merry mix of city, town and countryside. After the pizazz of Blackpool's piers and pleasure beach, escape to silent moors scattered with reservoirs and ruins for glimpses of owls and falcons. You can dip into a rich industrial heritage at mills and working museums and follow the trail of England’s most-famous witches across Lancaster and Pendle. And for food lovers, Lancashire is brimming with native culinary delights, having its own scrumptiously-creamy cheese, a signature dish in the form of Lancashire Hotpot, being the home of black pudding in Bury, the butter pie, Eccles and Chorley cakes, and Britain’s last original Temperance Bar in Rossendale. Visit Lancashire and see one of England’s most beautiful counties for yourself.
