Whether you’re visiting Lancashire for a weekend getaway or a local wanting to spend some quality time with family, there’s plenty of activities for you to enjoy in the historic towns and magnificent countryside that this region has to offer.
This elegantly designed building offers a fantastic range of activities and services to the Darwen and Blackburn area. A regular favourite is Splash, a purpose-built swimming academy where there’s plenty of support to improve your fitness or to have a splash around with the family. The pool is eco-friendly and is bacteria free, making it a safe place for small children and babies who have sensitive skin.
Only a quick journey away is Tenpin Blackburn, a classic activity for everyone to enjoy. There’s also offers on too, like adding in a meal at The Grill diner as it’s more affordable that way and you don’t have to worry about finding a place to eat. For a modern twist, why not go to the glow bowling disco nights which the older kids will love? They lower the lighting, blast disco-style music and have UV effects.
Take it to another level and be prepared for a Nerf battle at Blackburn Dart Zone. Play well-known games like capture the flag, bank robbery, zombies and Fortnite. The indoor arena is almost 3,000 square feet so there’ll be plenty of room to play. There are inflatables and tunnels as well as soft floor matting so no one will get any accidental battle scars!
Hoghton Tower is only a few miles from Darwen and Blackburn and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and grounds which little princes and princesses will love. Join a house tour and discover the history of the house as well as the family, stop by the Tea Room for a quick snack and pop into the gift shop to complete your visit. Throughout the year there are family-friendly events where tours are offered with children in mind and the little ones can dress up in costume.
Have a lovely Lancashire summer! We look forward to seeing you at The Hub at Riverside soon.
