The beauty of Lancashire is that, being so close to the gorgeous English Lake District it shares many of that idyllic landscape's features, but it is also less crowded and you often feel as if you have the whole county to yourself. The history of Lancashire, too, is as rich as that of any English county. The Romans were not the first influence here, but they were the first civilising one and once they'd pushed the Celts back into their Welsh heartlands the way was clear to build a great heritage. You can still see any of their monuments, and from a later date the great castles of medieval barons and the remains of imposing abbeys dot the landscape. The industrial heritage is impressive too, with canals and old mills key features of the landscape. There are numerous stately homes to visit as well. The best way to see the region in style is to stay at a five-star hotel in Lancashire and enjoy luxurious comfort, and plenty of historic and cultural interest.
Among many other things, Lancashire is famous for two iconic food items: Lancashire Cheese and Lancashire Hot Pot! These two will be present on just about any menu you're presented with and should be enjoyed to the full. While you're not indulging yourself in a five-star Lancashire hotel such as the Redstone Guest House in Blackpool or The Millstone at Mellor in Blackburn you can be out and about exploring the lovely countryside that the county is perhaps most famous for. It has much in common with that of Cumbria, but as many visitors are merely passing through on their way to the more famous Lakeland, you'll have all the more space to relax and unwind. Lancashire is criss-crossed with established walking and hiking trails, with plenty of market towns and taverns along the way, and this is a perfect way of exploring the region.
The stunning landscapes of Lancashire are made even more picturesque by the numbers of ruined castles and abbeys sprinkled across the countryside. From Oldham in the east and Lancaster in the north to Salford in the south of the county, you'll find them everywhere. They bring the medieval past to life and, along with the more modern stately homes and formal parks, they make perfect destinations for day trips from your five-star hotel in Lancashire.
One of the many delights that await you on coming to Lancashire is the county's magnificent coastline. It's perfect for a seaside holiday, and towns like Blackpool attract fun-seeking visitors throughout the year. Blackpool, along with other coastal towns such as Southport and Fleetwood, offer tourists all the facilities they need for a fun break beside the sea, complete with entertainment venues and water sports. Stay at a Lancashire five-star hotel while you're here and you'll be all set for a perfect holiday with every comfort and facility.
