There are many things to see and do in the area. Cycle the canals on our family friendly cycle trails, get a real buzz racing round the track at Prestige Karting, and make a splash at Wavelengths, with its big slide and wave machine. Or why not go wild down on the farm at Thornton Hall?
No doubt you will never tire of the stunning views, but if you do want to take it easy there's an amazing facility, the Inside Spa, which will invigorate your mind and body, leaving you refreshed. Pendle also has a number of golf courses, including Marsden Park and Colne. In the evenings you can relax by taking in Colne's fine Restaurant Quarter, and after have a trip to the Pendle Hippodrome or the Colne Muni with its sparkling range of entertainment.
A spot of retail therapy? Boundary Mill has a huge store here, as does Pendle Village Mill. Big brand heaven! If you're drawn more to niche-style shopping the village of Barrowford is a must, as are the nearby towns of Barnoldswick and Colne.
Heritage is never far away, with the Pendle Witches, as well as museums that offer a real taste of the past, like the Pendle Heritage Centre, a terrific historic house and garden, and Bancroft Mill, with its massive 30ft Flywheel, still driven by steam. Pendle is different and quirky. Nowhere epitomises this more than the British in India Museum.
Pendle has inspired many photographers and artists, a number of whose works you can see displayed in local galleries, like Higherford Mill, and the Keith Melling Gallery. Nature and art are so intertwined here. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the Pendle Sculpture Trail or at Wycoller Counttry Park, with its stunning sculpture called The Atom.
