Bolton is a large former mill town in Greater Manchester and its location in North West England makes it a perfect base for touring. The rugged West Pennine Moors, southeast of Rivington Pike, are only a short drive away. A longer drive of just over 40 miles takes you to the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, favoured by walkers and cyclists alike. This is where the famous Pendle Witches came from. In 1612, they were taken for trial at Lancaster, 42 miles north of Bolton, a historic city with a castle and home to Lancaster University. Kendal, gateway to the Lake District, is 63 miles away and the coastal resorts of Blackpool and Morecombe are only an hour’s drive away. Bolton grew during the Industrial Revolution, reaching its peak in Victorian times, and many of the civic buildings are an expression of civic pride from that era. The town has two museums, Bolton Museum and The Bolton Steam Museum. Entertainment can be found at the Octagon Theatre and Bolton’s famous Albert Halls, part of the town hall complex and popularised by the comedian, Peter Kay. The local football team, Bolton Wanderers, play at the Macron Stadium. Enterprise Rent-A-Car is situated on the Pilot Industrial Estate, just over a mile outside the town, on Manchester Road.
