English Tourism Week

I visited one of Wigan’s most popular countryside spots during English Tourism Week.

Three Sisters Recreation Area offers visitors everything from picnic and play areas to one of the most versatile race circuits in the UK. It is also home to a major wetland and Local Nature Reserve; and the tranquil lake on site provides a home for a variety of wildfowl. The bird feeding station which is managed by the Friends of Three Sisters is locally famous for the birdlife it attracts which includes woodpeckers, the rare Willow Tit, Bullfinch and lots of other species.

We have some wonderful attractions in Wigan borough, from beautiful green spaces to heritage centres such as the Museum of Wigan Life and Trencherfield Mill. English Tourism Week is all about celebrating these gems on our doorstep and I look forward to spending some time taking in the sights at Three Sisters.

English Tourism Week (29 March-6 April) is a week-long celebration of events showcasing the quality and vibrancy of the visitor experiences and the value our industry brings to our nation.
