Things to do in Wigan
Midway between the vibrant cities of Liverpool and Manchester, Wigan is a relaxed and attractive town nestled in the wonderful northwest England. Wigan is also just a short drive away from the Fylde Coast, with the ever-popular tourist favourite Blackpool and the coastal town of Southport. Wigan town itself is lively and filled with bars, shops, restaurants and a thriving cultural scene. Wigan's most famous attraction, however, is the historic Wigan Pier. On the banks of the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, it is a fascinating place that celebrates the industrial heritage of the northwest. At the heart of Wigan Pier is The Way We Were, a loving recreation of the Victorian way of life for the people of Wigan and beyond. The Trencherfield Mill Engine is the largest original working mill steam engine in the world. You can see it in action accompanied by an informative audio-visual exhibition. It is perhaps the most impressive sight at the Pier.
