There's much more to do: take in the waterfront at Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, take in the exciting artwork at Walker Art Gallery, examine the collection at Merseyside Maritime Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Liverpool Cathedral.

Lancashire travel guide

Theme Parks · Specialty Museums · Nightlife
Less touristed than its neighbor and friendly rival Yorkshire, the county of Lancashire is often remembered as one of the focal points of the Industrial Revolution. Despite its industrial heritage and heavy urbanization, this region offers numerous vacation ideas, not the least of which is the sweeping countryside dotted with thriving towns and quaint villages. Though this region contains Blackpool, long considered one of the country’s prime seaside resorts, many travelers avoid holidays in the bustling urban centers and head for the region’s largely unspoiled and secluded rural areas. Lancashire’s hidden gem is the Forest of Bowland, internationally renowned for its heather moorland, blanket bog, and rare birds.
