What attractions should I make time for on a business trip to a hotel in Leigh?

Leave the comforts of your hotel in Leigh and head to Wigan Pier. It’s not actually a pier, but an area around the inland town’s canal. Take a stroll around here to learn about industrial Wigan’s history. The old cotton mill and warehouse can still be seen, although the Wigan Pier Nightspot is now closed. Visit the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery for some more local history, or head to the premier birdwatching site, Pennington Flash Country Park, where 200 hectares of green space surrounds a 70-hectare lake. In addition to the wide variety of birds and butterflies that can be spotted here, the park boasts a municipal golf course, fishing and picnicking areas, and sailing, rowing, and windsurfing.
