Leisure and Pleasure

67 million people each year choose to visit Lancashire

We are leisure and pleasure

Whether it’s to enjoy our rich culture and heritage, to take to our coast and hills for fresh-air fun and some of the best outdoor activities around or, to learn why we’re referred to as ‘food & drink country’ thanks to authentic local produce that’s second to none. Many of our visitors return time and again and more and more are staying for longer breaks and holidays because a day just isn’t long enough here in Lancashire.

Jump on a Virgin train from London or Glasgow and be in the centre of Preston in just two hours, then it’s a short hop to the bright lights and entertainment of Blackpool – the UK’s favourite seaside resort – or to the beautiful countryside of the Forest of Bowland, the geographic centre of the UK and the latest stargazers paradise.

This county of contrasts has something for everyone from award winning music and food festivals, concerts in castles and stately homes, new trails for walkers and cyclists, the UK’s largest walkabout theatre in England’s newest historic city, Lancaster, or to the only bird’s eye view of the Illuminations from the top of Blackpool Tower Eye. Lancashire has something for everyone.
