For a relaxing break, why not rent a Lancashire holiday cottage, and explore the beauty of this county in your own time. A vibrant, Royal Duchy county, Lancashire boasts three of the country’s most famous cities: Blackpool, Liverpool and Manchester. Take the kids out for an exciting day at the Blackpool Pleasure Beach, or go to the other two cities with friends, and spend a weekend exploring the thrilling night life. While Manchester offers much for art lovers, such as the Palace Theatre and the esteemed Whitworth Art Gallery, Liverpool is a mecca for music lovers, home to both the Albert Dock, where the Beatles Story is, and also the legendary Cavern Club itself. Alternatively, travel to Preston and you will find the Museum of Lancashire – the building itself is listed, and something to behold! Alternatively, stroll through Williamson Park and you will find The Ashton Memorial, an elegant estate made early in the last century. The Winter Gardens and Opera House Theatre in Blackpool also offers elegance and exciting shows – the perfect backdrop to a romantic escape.
Brought the kids with you on holiday? Then be sure to add the Sandcastle Waterpark to your itinerary, which promises to keep the whole family laughing and having fun. Also brilliant for a family day out is the Blackpool Sea Life Centre, boasting over 1000 sea creatures, including sea-horses and turtles. If after all this time in the city, you are looking for a nature escape, then the West Pennine Moors offer stunning walks through miles of greenery and reservoirs. You will never run out of something new to do in Lancashire.
Inland Lancashire also has plenty of beauty spots, particularly in the high limestone hills of the North Pennines. Go for a walk along the wild windswept but starkly beautiful Pennine Way or book a caving trip through underground caverns through a local outdoor pursuits centre, then, whatever your activity, finish off your day with a pint of two of a fine local beer in a country pub.
