A rich foodie heritage and more in Chorley

Sitting at the edge of the West Pennine Moors, this charming Lancashire market town dates back to the Bronze Age. There are a wealth of historic attractions to explore in and around the town, not least Hoghton Tower. It's here that James I is said to have knighted a particularly tasty loin of beef in the banqueting hall. Hence the name sirloin of beef...

Fresh seafood and gourmet ice-cream

The food theme continues at Chorley's main market, held every Tuesday. It's got over 150 stalls selling everything from handbags and shoes to locally grown produce and fresh seafood. After browsing the market, treat yourself to a delicious ice-cream or gourmet sundae from the award-winning Frederick's parlour in Cunliffe Street.

Monkeying around at Rivington Pike

Known as a mini Lake District, Rivington has rugged hills, picturesque reservoirs and a historic tower. On a clear day you can see Blackpool Tower and the Isle of Man from the top. Thrill-seekers can clamber over rope bridges and cross the reservoir on a zipwire at Go Ape. Looking for a cheap hotel Near Chorley?
