Chorley is an ancient market town in the foodie county of Lancashire, located next to the West Pennine Moors and close to Wigan, Blackburn, Bolton and Manchester. Its history dates back over 3,500 years ago to the Bronze Age, and there is a huge amount to see and do. Walk the Heritage Trail, head to Astley Park to enjoy 43 hectares of landscaped park and visit the town market which has been running since 1498. If you're feeling energetic, hike up to Rivington Pike for the incredible views. There is also great independent shopping and some fantastic Chorley restaurants to discover, spanning English, Spanish, Indian, Italian, Thai and other global cuisines.
Chorley Cake is perhaps the best known of this town's food exports. It is a round and flat, fruit-filled pasty cake that is often served with a little butter on the top, and perhaps a slice of cheese as an accompaniment. Local Lancashire cheese is another speciality food and it often features on the menu of Chorley restaurants. Visit one of the traditional British restaurants in Chorley or a local cafe or gastropub if you fancy giving either delicacy a try.
The town has plenty of events during the year, including the annual flower show in July and Chorley Live, which is a two day entertainment celebration across the town's live venues. The eateries also get very busy on weekends. It's always best to book a table at your chosen restaurants in Chorley to avoid any disappointment and to enjoy a hassle-free evening of delicious dining.
