Leisure Breaks in Lancashire
The Mercure Wigan Oak Hotel is the perfect base for a great weekend or short break
Wigan is set in the county of West Lancashire which boasts green and peaceful countryside, picturesque villages, bustling towns, stately homes, great gardens, steam railways, safari parks and great shopping. It is a county that has something for everyone. DW Stadium is the home of Wigan Rugby and there is also the Wigan Athletic Football Club. For golfers we have preferential rates at Haigh Hall Golf Complex.
If you enjoy shopping then a visit to the Albert Docks in Liverpool is well worth a visit. If you enjoy a bout of horseracing, then both Haydock & Aintree Racecourse are nearby.
In the evening, you can sample Wigan's nightlife and an annual highpoint is Wigan's International Jazz Festival held every July.
