The East Lancashire Railway has been one of the cornerstones of local culture and community within Lancashire for over 100 years, and we couldn't ask for a better setting, from the pretty rural countryside and quant little villages to historic urban vistas. The area has an array of award winning pubs, major retail outlets, quirky independent boutiques, restaurants, cafes, hotels and heritage attractions – there is so much to discover!
