Best Western have 11 hotels in Lancashire

Book a Best Western Lancashire hotel in the peaceful countryside for the summer and settle back, relax and enjoy the cricket.

Town and city breaks in Lancashire
When choosing a hotel in Lancashire, Best Western has eleven to choose from, spread conveniently throughout the area, enabling easy access to all corners of Lancashire's luscious lands. The old cogs and power houses of the Industrial Revolution are scattered throughout the area. Oldham and Burnley, in particular, still impress with their imposing architecture and multicultural flare. The city of Lancaster is certainly worth a visit and is still considered by many to be the real county town. It has certainly had a long and interesting history. It started its life as a roman fort and is located on the beautiful River Lune. Its ancient beginnings can be seen scattered throughout the city and its historical importance can be seen in our Queen who herself is also the Duke of Lancaster. Lancaster Castle remains, majestic and imposing. It was a major force during the English Civil War. The real county town, Preston, another beautiful traditional English city, is also worth a visit, located on the North bank of the River Ribble. The city is home to more than one Best Western Lancashire hotel. The exciting city contains St Walburge's Church, which has the tallest spire of any church that isn't a cathedral and is jam-packed with cosy pubs and quirky restaurants - the perfect day out.
Holidays in the Lancashire countryside
Nestled between the wild Irish Sea on one side and the Pennines on the other, the county of Lancashire has a varied mix of scenery and landscape. Walking can be the best way to take in this beautiful countryside. There are a number of country trails, from short gentle paths to long-distance treks. There are even a few walks inspired by the Pendle Witches and renowned authors as well as several guided tours. For a beautiful evening before returning to your Lancashire hotel, head to Morecambe Bay and watch the sunset. The waterways and canals are a proud heritage of Lancashire. One of the best ways to spend a summer evening is surely listlessly lazing along a Lancashire lock. To rent a narrowboat for an afternoon before retiring to one of our many hotels in Lancashire, is a truly magical way to spend your UK short break.
Attractions in Lancashire
Perhaps the most famous holiday destination in the UK, Blackpool is a hugely popular place. The Pleasure Beach theme park is a great day out. It contains the UK's tallest roller coaster, Big One, as well as Europe's first, fully-inverting roller coaster. It's very tempting to gorge oneself on the succulent candyfloss available, but be warned, many of the rides are stomach churning and wild. There is almost no doubt that booking a Best Western Lancashire hotel near Blackpool will result in a raucous, fun and jam-packed trip. In terms of other entertainment, the Lancashire Golf Course is certainly worth a visit for any keen sportsmen, while for anyone looking to take in a bit of culture, the county has an impressive selection of theatres and galleries. King George's Hall for example, located in the centre of Blackburn, is one of the region's finest venues and puts on a remarkable selection of performances including musicals, pantomimes, classical concerts as well as serious dramatics.
