Chorley is a popular Lancashire market town steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside with strong connections to the story of Mayflower military advisor Myles Standish.
You may have heard of Chorley because of the famous markets, splendidly tasting Chorley Cakes or even the satirically portrayed Chorley FM.
But when you visit Chorley you’ll realise there’s so much to discover. With a bustling town centre, historic halls, pleasant parks, carefree cycling, wonderful walks and adventurous activities, there are lots of things to do in Chorley.
We are ideally located in the North West of England just a short journey to the cities of Manchester and Liverpool and a short hop up the motorway to the beautiful Lake District. We are the perfect place to explore the North West and learn about the story of Myles Standish who played a vital role in settling the Mayflower Pilgrims in America.
