Things to do in Lancashire and nearby

Adlington borders the West Pennine Moors where you can enjoy fantastic walks and breath-taking views. The town is thriving, with sports clubs, interest societies and plenty of good restaurants and pubs. For the children, there’s a recreation ground just across the road. Further afield, watch Bolton Wanderers FC at the University of Bolton Stadium. It’s next to Middlebrook Retail Park, where you can also shop, eat, go bowling or visit the cinema. For a day out, visit Rivington Terraced Gardens or Pennington Flash Country Park, where you can enjoy lake walks, golf, a children’s play area, bird watching and some water sports. If city life is your thing, Manchester and Liverpool are both within striking distance.
