From the elegant and ancient city of Chester to the inspirational vistas of the Lake District, and from the award winning industrial heritage of Manchester to the outstanding cultural attractions of Liverpool, there’s so much to see and do in England’s Northwest. Add to these a spectacular coastline with Britain’s favourite seaside resorts, the delightfully undiscovered countryside of Lancashire, the spectacular gardens of Cheshire and England’s own Golf Coast, and you’re spoilt for choice.
What makes the Northwest a green destination?
Picture England’s Northwest and it may surprise you to learn that 80% of the region is in fact green and pleasant land. From the rolling Cheshire plain to wild and rugged Scafell Pike, this is one of the most naturally diverse regions of England. Boasting England’s largest National Park, three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and over 1000 kilometres of magnificent coastline, there are plenty of opportunities to discover and explore this inspiring corner of England.
As well as the world-famous Lake District with England’s highest peak and longest lake, here you’ll find the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, full of exceptional heather moorland, blanket bog and rare birds such as Hen Harriers. Martin Mere is the spot for spectacular bird migrations, Formby Point one of the last outposts of the rare red squirrel and the meres and mosses of Cheshire form part of an internationally important habitat unique to the Northwest.
