Wigan North Western is one of two railway stations that serve Wigan town centre.
Once world famous for coal mining, this lively town is home to a staggering 216 listed buildings, and the Museum of Wigan Life - opened in 1878 and the place where George Orwell conducted research when writing his book The Road To Wigan Pier- provides visitors with a fascinating glimpse into the past.
But, as well as embracing its heritage, Wigan's also looking to the future with the regenerated Wigan Pier Quarter and the impressive Grand Arcade Shopping Centre. Be sure to stop off for a drink at Harry's Bar, which plays host to the World Pie Eating Championship in December every year!
