    I been to lots but not all of these, will definitely give working through the rest of them a go. It’s always good to have somewhere new to try out!

    Some of these look great. I haven’t been up your way much but Chorley is one of my favourite places, it’s so beautiful!

    What a fab list you have put together I love posts like this. So many wonderful ideas for the summer holidays. The beauty of the free places as well are unlike the big theme parks these places usually arnt as busy as the massive theme parks in the holidays.

    This is a great guide – I live in West Yorkshire so Lancashire isn’t too far to travel for me.
