Lancashire is blessed with art deco hotels; self-catering sites for all the family; boutique B&Bs and Instagram worthy glamping experiences in shepherd huts and converted helicopters.  The local produce in Lancashire is of renowned quality with Goosnargh Chicken and Morecambe Bay Shrimps and Blacksticks Blue Cheese.  The fast-expanding distillery market in Lancashire is developing as a response to the huge demand in artisan products.  Lancashire is blessed with three Michelin starred restaurants and hugely talented and high-profile chefs such as Lisa Goodwin-Allen.

With such a thriving industry it’s no surprise that the visitor economy contributes £4.4bn to the overall economy* and supports over 60 thousand jobs*.  Lancashire has an enviable reputation for a warm friendly welcome and memorable experiences which are made possible by the hard work, creativity, passion and dedication of the talented workforce.
