Travelling around Bolton
Situated in Greater Manchester, Bolton is a former mill town in North West England, not far from Wigan, Rochdale and Manchester city centre. It is also close to the West Pennine Moors.
Bolton is a busy town with lots to see and do for all ages – a study by the British Association for the Advancement of Science (now the British Science Association) identified Bolton as the friendliest town in the UK, so it’s worth a visit on that basis alone!
Bolton is easily accessible by rail and road. Arriva buses operate in the area, with services to Wigan, Horwich and Astley Bridge.
