Ramsbottom Station

A perfect midpoint on the ELR line, Ramsbottom station is your stop for this lively town with its artisan markets, rustic pubs, delightful cafés and wonderful local shops.

Must See Destination

Ramsbottom is the ideal place to hop off the train and spend some time exploring, whether you’re a shopper, a foodie or a rambler. And there’s loads of fun for families too, including a one mile duck spotting trail.

Packed with independent boutiques, quirky gift shops and specialist craft stores – all selling brilliant local produce and hand-made gifts – Ramsbottom is a shopper’s delight.


The picturesque Lancashire countryside surrounds the town, and a climb up to Peel Tower atop Holcombe Hill is well worth the effort. The views across the West Pennine Moors are spectacular.
