Horwich is near a diverse collection of Manchester’s well-known sights. Two attractions that should be at the top of every visitor’s to-do list is the fabulous Wigan Pier and the ever-popular Astley Green Colliery Museum. Two other recommended attractions you’ll find within a short distance of Horwich are the British Commercial Vehicle Museum and Hoghton Tower.
If the weather is good get outdoors and enjoy the nearby green spaces. If you’re looking for a green urban park visit Heaton Park. Hit the trail and enjoy the well-used nature parks for which this area is well known, like the Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary in Preston.
For some retail therapy, explore Trafford Centre.
After a long day enjoying Horwich, get a good nights sleep in one of the area’s popular hotels or serviced apartments. For a good night’s sleep check out the Novotel Manchester West, the Holiday Inn Bolton Centre, and the Park Inn by Radisson Leigh.
