With the current situation and a lot of places we’d usually take the kids shut, we have searched high and low for free(and open!) days out in East Lancashire, here are our top five.
- Brockholes Nature Reserve - Preston New Rd, Samlesbury, Preston PR5 0AG. Brockholes is a 250 acre nature reserve in the heart of Lancashire, located just off the M6 near Preston. The visitors centre floats on a beautiful lake and is still open along with the cafe. With 250 acres you are guaranteed to keep the kids occupied.
- Lytham St Annes Beach, Promenade, Lytham St Annes, Lancashire, FY8 1LW. This beach is our favourite for a day out with the kids, quieter and more calm than Blackpool it boasts lots of character and even Lowther gardens you can walk through!
- The singing ringing tree, Crown Point Rd, Burnley BB11 3QZ The singing ringing tree is an beautiful sculpture which on windy days sings with stunning views over surrounding Lancashire.
- Clitheroe Castle, Castle Hill, Clitheroe, Lancashire, BB7 1BA Clitheroe is a great day out for the whole family, especially on nice days! You can walk up to the castle one of two ways so there is a shorter less steep route for those with little legs! You could also take a walk through town and get an ice cream from The Chocolate Works.
- Wycoller Country Park, Colne BB8 8SX. The park itself is an absolute beauty spot with gorgeous views and a quaint village nearby. There are also ruins with loads of historical information so you can make it educational too!
We hope you have the perfect day out!
