About Lancashire

The M6 motorway provides a physical line which neatly divides Lancashire into its two primary regions. To the west lies the coastal plain with its low sandy beaches between the Ribble estuary and the Cumbria border. This region is often referred to as the 'Lungs of Lancashire' and includes the popular holiday resorts of Blackpool and Morecambe.

To the east of the M6 lies Lancashire's Hill country which is by far the most attractive and interesting for walking. The beautiful countryside in this region embraces the rugged and varied terrain of the Forest of Bowland, a designated AONB, and the secluded open moors in the South and West Pennines. Pendle, famous for its witches, and the Ribble Valley are both great locations for walking in Lancashire. There are stunning views, attractive villages, lovely rivers and streams, woodland, reservoirs, canal side paths and much else to explore and enjoy

Lancahire would probably lay claim to Britain's longest-established permanent professional symphony orchestra, the Hallé Orchestra, as Manchester was historically part of Lancashire. A former printworks in the centre of Rawtenstall near the steam railway station is regular host to Covers & Tribute bands, and in Burnley the Burnley Mechanics hosts performances from a wide range of artists including musicians.
