Visit Lancashire: Official Guide for Short Breaks, Days Out and Places to See in Lancashire

Welcome to Lancashire, a county of contrasting landscapes, diverse heritage and plentiful food and drink, covering 3,075 Km2 of England’s north west. From the world famous seaside town of Blackpool with its iconic Tower in the west to the undulating fells and moorland of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Pennines in the east, visitors to Lancashire are truly spoilt!

If you love walking and cycling, we have two Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty to conquer, including the majestic Pendle Hill. Come and explore Lancashire’s countryside, canals, coast and towns where you can enjoy stunning views, quiet lanes, rare wildlife and of course not forgetting the famous Lancashire coastline, including a 137 mile footpath that takes in spectacular views of Morecambe Bay and the Bowland Fells. 

September is a fantastic time to visit with plenty of events taking place, don’t miss the chance to see CATS at the Winter Gardens before it finishes on 5 Sept!

For one glamorous weekend the music, fashion, film, art, design and dance from the 1920s to the 1980s that has made Britain the world’s creative and cultural hot bed is celebrated at the Morecambe Vintage By the Sea Festival 5 - 6 September.

We're also very excited to welcome The Tour of Britain, British Cycling's premier road cycling event and the country's largest annual free-to-spectate sporting event with live TV coverage on ITV4. Monday 7 September sees Stage Two take place within the Ribble Valley and Pendle districts for a short, sharp stage with plenty of climbing through the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A winding route gives plenty of chances for spectators to enjoy the start in Clitheroe, passing through Dunsop Bridge, the geographic centre of the United Kingdom before the finish in Colne.
