Explore Accrington

Body

Whilst attending an event in Accrington you could explore the town centre on the Accrington Acorn Trail, which takes you from the magnificent Town Hall, built in 1858 at the height of Accrington’s textiles success, along Willow Street with its imposing houses and past Carnegie Library to the oldest part of town, along Warner Street.

No visit to Accrington would be complete without exploring Hyndburn’s picturesque surrounding countryside. Serious walkers will revel in the 31-mile circular Hyndburn Clog, which passes through remarkably diverse countryside including moorland and lowland and offers spectacular views of the scenic Hill Country. But if you just fancy a short stroll, the walk is broken down into seven manageable stages!

Or walkers could try Canal Clog which connects parts of the Hyndburn Clog with the Leeds and Liverpool Canal towpath?

Bargain hunters should pay a visit to nearby Oswaldtwistle Mills, housed in five former weaving sheds, which has over 80 discount outlets.
