Bolton has a lot to offer.

The Reebok Stadium

The Reebok Stadium

The Reebok Stadium is the home stadium of English Premier League football club Bolton Wanderers, and is located on the Middlebrook retail park in Horwich, near Bolton. It is commonly known as 'The Reebok'. It is a modern, all-seater stadium with a capacity of 28,723 which was completed in 1997, replacing the club's old ground, Burnden Park. Despite the improved facilities and larger capacity (and resultant larger ticket revenues), this move was unpopular with many of the club's fans. This was partly due to the new stadium being built out-of-town, and partly due to sentimental attachment to the old stadium and its history. In recognition of this, the street on which the stadium is situated is called Burnden Way. The Reebok Stadium is named for long-time team sponsor, Reebok. Again, this was unpopular with many fans, as it was considered impersonal, and that too much emphasis was being placed on financial considerations. This opposition has considerably lessened since the stadium was built, however, as fans have grown accustomed to the name.

Hall i'th' Wood Museum

Hall i'th' Wood Museum

Hall i’ th’ Wood was originally built as a half-timbered hall in the 15th century and was owned by wealthy yeomen and merchants. After 1697 the Hall was rented out to various tenants. It was during this period that a young Samuel Crompton came to live there with his parents. In 1779 he invented his Spinning Mule, which revolutionised the cotton industry. The Hall eventually fell into disrepair and was then purchased by eminent Boltonian, Lord Leverhulme, who paid for its restoration in memory of Samuel Crompton. In 1902, Lord Leverhulme officially handed the Hall over to the people of Bolton.

Please note Access: Due to the age and design of the building there are many uneven floors and steps. The site is also unsuitable for wheelchair access. We are working to improve access.

Last Drop Village

Last Drop Village

This apparently quaint old Lancashire village near Bromley Cross actually lies within the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton and is a fairly modern creation, although you might be forgiven for believing it to be quite ancient as it has been created most authentically and tastefully. It is a collection of buildings on the edge of the West Pennine Moors which was totally refurbished and restored in the 1960s into a smart upmarket leisure centre and much sought after area to live. The village includes a pub, a village restaurant offering good traditional lunches in a converted cowshed, a bistro, various craft shops, a hotel and conference centre.Well worth a visit for Sunday lunch and for a pleasant summer afternoon out.
