    Lovely safe place to visit with our grandchildren and dogs.
    Staff in all areas are welcoming and friendly.
    Our particular favourite is the ice cream van! The staff are so patient with our contrary grandchildren and the vans are so clean inside and out. A real treat!

    St. Patrick’s Irish night - great atmosphere, dancing, drinks and great company. Definitely going to see what other events they have got on here

    Lived nearby for so long and hadn't even heard of here until recently, so thought today I was going to pay it a visiit.

    It was a really magical place, different paths so easy routes suitable for most people and some alternative paths if you want to get of the beaten track a bit. We stayed here for about 1hour but you could easily spend longer if you wanted a longer walk.

    I chose the Nissan GTR and Ferrari F430. YOU MUST ask for Peter before booking to be honest. Get in whichever car Peter is doing for the day. I firstly went in the Nissan GTR with an instructor who constantly told me to be easy even though the car didn't even feel like it was going 1/10th of its capability. Peter took me out in the much more inferior and older F430, which was a shocking car to be honest , however, the experience was night and day. Peter was encouraging me and praising me on my driving and effectively advising me how to take the racing lines! If it wasn't for Peter, the experience would've been entirely different. Thanks Peter!

    My local stadium and went to watch Wigan against Catalan. Good seats with excellent unobstructed view. I feel it lacks for atmosphere at times but a good dual purpose ground

    We came for a walk around here and we didn't have time to do it justice, it's a beautiful place to be and rather large, so we will be back when in the area

    There are many nice places to go walking near Standish and Worthington Lake is one of the best. Very picturesque with an abundance of different birds.

    Husband and I have been going to this Theatre for the past few years, it is an excellent evening out. There have been a couple of plays that we didn’t like, but it hasn’t put us off going! Highly recommend, for a wonderful evening!

    Great place to relax, picnic or walk the dog. The trail is hard-surfaced and there's lots of fun to be had, splashing by the stream or checking out birds and wildlife.

    Spent a couple of hours at the museum with my 13 year old son. Several small exhibitions - we enjoyed the natural history display, ancient Egypt section and learning about children's lives in the past. We then went upstairs to talk to the historians about tracing our family history (from around Wigan).

    Had the pleasure of a private tour and history lesson by an elderly gent and it was amazing. He told me the history and fables associated with the church. I was there for about an hour just this kind gent and myself. He pointed out the items and stories behind stained glass windows and an helmet from the civil war.

    The face is a sculpture in what in now known as I believe square. This square also celebrates Wigan favourite rugby hero Billy Boston, and also Gerrard Winstanley who was founder of the Diggers movement in the 1600s
