Culture, Arts & Heritage

Lancashire is a unique destination for its culture, arts & heritage. If you love your art, then check out our wonderful selection of Galleries around the county. If you'd like to get more creative on your visit, then take a look at our wide range of Arts & Crafts outlets and facilities. Discover the stories behind a county full of history and interesting artefacts and see our wide range of fascinating museums. Follow in the footsteps of the Pendle Witches, the most famous witchcraft trials in English History, from Pendle Heritage Centre through the Trough of Bowland to the dungeons of Lancaster Castle. If ghost hunting is your thing or you enjoy a spine tingling ghost story, join one of the spooky ghost walks through the historic towns of Blackburn, Darwen or Whalley, or visit the ghosts that reside at many of the county’s historic houses such as Samlesbury, Towneley and Rufford Old Hall.

The Lancashire Tourism Award 2016 winning Blackpool Tower offers heritage tours so you can learn about the fasinating history of the building. Carnforth Station Heritage Centre, also a tourism award winner in 2016, is famous for being the setting for David Lean's film, Brief Encounter.
