A former mill town, Blackburn is situated on the edge of the stunning Ribble Valley. With excellent commuter links to bigger cities such as Manchester, the town is located close to the M65, M6 and M61. London too is only a sub 3 hour commute on the train depending on local service.

The area prides itself on excellent schools and colleges, including Westholme Independent School for pupils aged 2 - 18 years and St. Christopher’s C. of E. High School, a “high achieving and over-subscribed outstanding school” catering for pupils from 11 – 18 years. In addition to this Blackburn College boasts high numbers of students achieving Triple Distinction Star grades (equivalent to 3A* at A-Level) and offers a range of courses from A-Levels to degree level studies.

There are excellent fine dining restaurants and cosy local pubs in and around the Blackburn area. Fancy an evening of Michelin star extravagance? Northcote is a luxury hotel with an award winning restaurant based in Langho. The hotel also houses a cookery school and is the sister hotel to The Stafford, London. Alternatively for a cosier local feel, The Clog and Billycock in the pretty village of Pleasington, has been serving its customers for over 150 years. Greeted by the warmth of an open fire and friendly atmosphere, locals, new residents and visitors are all welcomed, as they choose from the array of cask ales and extensive wine list.

Also home to Premier League winners Blackburn Rovers FC, this town boasts a rich sporting heritage and a short drive from the centre you will find an Olympic sized ice arena which was opened by none other than Jayne Torvill OBE and Christopher Dean OBE in 1991
