Picturesque Towns and Villages

So Many Special Places

If you're fond of chocolate box villages, unforgettable vistas, delicious local dishes and picture-postcard towns that are brimming with character and charm - then you'll love the Ribble Valley.

Situated in the timeless landscape of rural Lancashire, the two market towns, Longridge and Clitheroe, and 44 hamlets and villages are encapsulated within rolling hills, ancient woodlands and winding rivers. Each with its own distinct charm and unique traditions, the Ribble Valley genuinely is unlike anywhere else in the world.

Home to friendly folk, fresh local produce, and gastronomic delights, the Ribble Valley is some of the best food, drink and most inspirational chefs in the North West.

Spend a day or two discovering the Ribble Valley, and take a step back in time as you lose yourself exploring the historic delights of Whalley Abbey, stroll around the imposing Stonyhurst College or unearth the past at Ribchester Roman Museum.

With so many places to visit we've put an A-Z guide together for you, to help you on your way, highlighting some of the most intriguing sights and stories.
