Famed for its fabulous food scene the valley has countless award-winning restaurants to choose from that will satisfy everyone’s appetite, budget and preferences. From Michelin star to pie and peas the guarantee is a warm welcome and satisfied customers across the board.

Accommodation options have increased too from top level hotels through to luxury lodges, B&B’s, great pubs with rooms – even yurts and glamping. There’s so much choice to extend your stay across the mid-week or a weekend.

The great outdoors figures prominently in the activities on offer. Grab yourself an e-bike or follow the fabulous paths that reveal the beauty and history of the Ribble Valley. Our stately homes and museums are also open throughout summer to visit and in doing so support their restoration and future development. Key events such as the Royal Lancashire Show are supplemented by a number of smaller family and specialist events that celebrate Ribble Valley life.
