Travelling around Wigan

The historic town of Wigan is situated on the banks of the River Douglas, in the heart of Greater Manchester. With three national parks just a stone’s throw from the centre, countless listed buildings and beautiful Gothic-style architecture, this old mill town has much to offer. There’s the famous Wigan Pier, immortalised in the works of George Orwell, and the Leeds Liverpool canal – a magnificent example of 18th-century engineering, and the longest of its kind in the country.   

Wigan has excellent road and rail links, with Manchester and Liverpool both close by. Arriva bus services operate in the area, providing routes in and around the town centre, as well as outlying areas, including Bolton and Chorley.
