Time appears to have bypassed this historic area, leaving it immersed in fascinating history, including the stunning Clitheroe Castle, the Roman sites at Ribchester and the famous abbeys at Whalley and Sawley. The two historic market towns of Clitheroe and Longridge are surrounded by picturesque villages set in serene and unspoilt countryside. It is this timeless beauty, along with the warm hospitality that attracts visitors to return time and time again.
An occasion as special as a wedding needs a tailored, attentive service, in a breathtaking venue. Here in the Ribble Valley, not only is there a stunning range of beautiful wedding venues, but also experienced people dedicated to ensuring that each and every wedding is memorable and unique. The exquisite selection of venues ranges from buildings steeped in historic splendour to exclusive contemporary facilities. There are venues for intimate occasions and also venues for grander celebrations. Each venue has its own unique atmosphere but all of them share the backdrop of the beautiful Ribble Valley.
Situated minutes away from the M6 and with the A59 running directly through the Ribble Valley, the ‘centre of the kingdom’ is more accessible than ever before.
And, thanks to Ribble Valley Council’s latest tourism initiative there is now a unique partnership between the council and select venues licensed for marriage ceremonies.
Commenting about the partnership, Ribble Valley Wedding Heaven, the council’s tourism and events officer, Tom Pridmore, explained: “The Ribble Valley has an outstanding range of wedding venues set in some of the most stunning scenery in the UK.
“In a unique partnership, believed to be the first in the country, wedding venues are working together to promote the Ribble Valley as a premier destination for weddings, just as it is for food.”
