Situated close to the West Pennine Moors, Bolton is historically one of the most important towns in Lancashire. Just 10 miles north-west of the city of Manchester, one of our Mercure hotels in Bolton is located just outside the town, in the small village of Blackrod. Just off junction 6 of the M61, the hotel is well located if you’re looking for a base for a weekend away, or are in the Lancashire area for business. If you have a few hours to spare in the town centre, head over to the Bolton Steam Museum – the largest collection of working mill steam engines in the UK. See and smell Bolton’s cotton-producing history for yourself, with the town one of the largest and most productive centres of cotton spinning in the world in the early 20th century. For those on the hunt for history on their visit to Bolton, look no further than Smithills Hall just north of the city centre. One of Bolton’s original family homes, the hall is a Grade 1 listed building with some parts that date back to the 15th century. Take the free guided tour of the historic building and learn all about its fascinating past before stopping off at the museum’s tea rooms. If you want a break from relaxing during your stay, then head into the West Pennine Moors. Reach the tower at the summit of Rivington Pike and take in the picturesque views of the Lancastrian countryside, where, if it’s a clear day, you’ll be able to spot the villages and towns of Rivington, Adlington and Horwich below.
