Go shopping at Blackburn Market
Located just ten minutes away from the center of Clitheroe by car, this open-air market is a hub of activity on Sundays. Everyone from local producers to international exporters come to sell their wares, with something for everyone.
Go mountain biking at Beacon Fell
Only twenty minutes’ drive out of Clitheroe, Beacon Fell is an ideal location for cycling and walking trails. Whether you’re looking for a gentle cycle around the woodland or a more challenging route up to Beacon Fell’s summit, this is the perfect location.
Go shopping at The White Cloth Hall
For over 300 years, the White Cloth Hall has been selling high-quality Lancashire cotton textiles. Now a museum, visitors can pay a small fee to experience what it was like to buy and sell these goods in the building’s original setting.
Take a walk along Rivington Pike
Located on top of a hill 25 minutes’ drive from Clitheroe, this is the perfect location to go for fabulous views over Lancashire. Visitors can walk along footpaths and see houses situated absolutely miles below them.
Visit the Ribble Valley Brewing Company
Brewing its own beer on the premises, this is a great place to go for a tour, some samples, and a chat with the brewers about their trade. With regular beer festivals held here, there’s always something new to try.
Explore Clitheroe Castle
This Norman motte and bailey castle is a great place for kids (and adults!) to explore. With a number of different areas to investigate, as well as activities such as falconry displays, this is definitely worth a visit.
