Groupon’s Guide To Lancashire
Bordered by Liverpool and Manchester, Lancashire is on the doorstep of the Lake District National Park and Yorkshire Dales National Park, making it possible for globetrotters to experience both the urban and outdoor sports and entertainment opportunities of North West England.
Blackpool Pleasure Beach is ideal for travellers who want to bask in the sun, whereas the outdoorsy can relish the thrill of a hike or a memorable snap in West Pennine Moors, Pendle Hill or of WWT Martin Mere. More to explore lies at travellers’ feet: Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty such as Arnside and Silverdale with its Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve, and Forest of Bowland.
