About Lancashire

Set in the historic North West of England lies the red rose county of Lancashire. A county of beautiful countryside and places of historic interest. Visit the stately homes and castles along with ancient market towns and cities of national and international importance. Coastal towns, natural beaches and superb countryside offer much to walkers, photographers, and nature lovers whilst for those seeking the fast life a visit to Blackpool, the largest beachside funfair in Europe, with its famous tower and annual free Illumination display will take your breath way.
International airports at Manchester and regional airports at Liverpool and Blackpool are right on the doorstep of this beautiful county noted for its warm, friendy, people.
