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 the people who visit Lancashire return time and again and more and more are staying for longer breaks and holidays because a day just isn’t long enough here.
Lancashire’s four universities attract thousands of national and international students and research fellows every year. Lancaster University is recognised as being within the top 1 percent of the world’s universities and ranked 8th in the UK.
Whatever the form or function of our creations, Lancashire can be rightly proud of an amazing pedigree for invention, ingenuity and innovation. The businesses based here not only excel at having bright ideas, but also know how to convert those ideas into burgeoning enterprises.
Lancashire isn’t just a stellar place to do business, it is also a county offering a superb way of life, with our picturesque villages, traditional towns and lively cities, a 137-mile coastline, vast swathes of unspoilt countryside, a diverse culture, top gastropubs and award-winning hospitality that welcomes over 69 million visitors a year. Isn’t it time you took a closer look at Lancashire?
Lancashire has always been easy to get to and to get around, from pretty much anywhere in the world. However, at the moment as travel restrictions continue, we are aware that people are looking to alternative modes of transport.
