Pocket Guide: Wigan

Manchester is a remarkable city, with a history that goes all the way back to the Romans. It has an enviable industrial heritage too. Manchester was one of the most prolific and innovative centres of the Industrial Revolution, when factory workers manned great steam-driven spinning frames, and massive fortunes were made by the enterprising few. Manchester's civic buildings like the Museum of Science and Industry showcase much of the heritage of that time, lovingly restored in a city that has nevertheless continued to move with the times. There are plenty of attractions like this in the city centre, but the areas that comprise Greater Manchester also have their delights, which you can quickly and easily visit from your guesthouse or hotel in Manchester while you're here.

Hotels in Manchester for the Road to Wigan Pier

Wigan is historically associated with coal production; with the first mine here being established as early as 1450. At its height, Wigan had over a thousand pit shafts, all within a radius of five miles of the town centre. Wigan's cutting-edge network of canals during the Industrial Revolution was the main cause of its rapid economic growth at that time, and many workers poured into the area.

Discover Wigan from Manchester Hotels

One of the biggest tourist attractions in Wigan is its pier, made famous by George Orwell in 'The Road to Wigan Pier'. In it, he drew scathing attention to the awful working conditions of the miners here in the 1930s. These were appalling, and the mind baulks against what they must have been like in the less 'enlightened' times before then! But things have changed for the residents of Wigan today, and visitors can enjoy all the conveniences and entertainment options of a clean and modern town when they take a trip here from their Manchester hotels.

Wigan has been comprehensively redeveloped since the coal mines closed, with green developments and landscaping replacing the old slag heaps. Visit the excellent Museum of Wigan Life from your Manchester hotel or guesthouse, to see what life used to be like around here in the good old, bad old days.
