Situated in Lancashire, Wigan is one of the four oldest boroughs in the county. The population count stands at 97,000 local residents, and in the surrounding area there are just short of 318,000 people!
BIKER FRIENDLY BARS AND HANGOUTS
This biker friendly pub is a great place to visit, especially in the summer. At the back of the property they have an old bowling green that is now accompanied by plenty of tables for people to sit and enjoy a refreshing drink. During the week they host various events, such as, live music, quiz nights, as well as showing sporting events too. This year they held a raffle draw in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support.
Located in Orrell, this pub is very accommodating for bikers. Dominic and his team enjoy welcoming everyone to their pub where they have some well –reviewed dishes and a refreshing and extensive drinks menu. They have a large car park that is free for their customers. When you enter The Stag Inn, if you have parked here, don’t forget to submit your registration into the machine to redeem your free ticket!
Possibly the most biker-friendly cafe on this list! This independent coffee shop is operated by Emma and her team. Being a biker herself, Emma fully embraces the biking community at her cafe, especially the interior; take a look at their Instagram!
Dean and his team are the ‘hostest’s with the mostest’ here at Crooke Hall Inn. They have a huge site with plenty of parking, and it’s especially a great place to visit if you’re a dog person! They have recently been nominated for the ‘Dog Friendly Awards 2019’! Crooke Hall is located beside the Leeds/Liverpool Canal-side, a fantastic spot for a summer’s day.
BIKER FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION IN WIGAN
The very historic ‘Robert De Holland Inn’ opened for the first time all the way back in 1654! Now a Grade II listed building, Holland Hall is structured by Baroque architecture, making it a one-of-a-kind place to stay.
Situated just north of Wigan in Eccleston is Parr Hall Farm is my kind of place! Offering secure parking and with easy access from the motorway, it’s absolutely perfect for bikers! This 4-star Bed & Breakfast is located in an 18th Century Farmhouse, nestled in fields upon fields of rural Wigan. Collectively they have 10 rooms to offer, with prices starting from £60 per night. Parr Hall Farm is often the venue for weddings, that just tells you how nice it is, doesn’t it?!
Located in Hindley, the Alexandra is a traditional pub offering a warm and welcoming experience to everyone. This is the standard meeting place for Swan2Wheels – a club that we will mention later on. There are also 4 en-suite rooms available, if you’ve been tempted by their ales and need a place to kip the night!
