Leisure and Outdoors

On the edge of the town centre lies the popular Horwich leisure centre, with its pool, fitness centre and sports hall – with a new, £10 million state of the art facility under development on the site of the old multi story car park. Across at Middlebrook, the Bolton Arena offers another indoor sports facility for local residents, visitors and employees alike with Bolton Wanderers Macron Stadium onside for the clubs faithful supporters. Lying as it does on the edge of the West Pennine Moors, Horwich also offers easy access to walking, hiking and cycling trails up to Rivington Pike and beyond with a stop off for refreshments at one of the two Rivington Barns.

For hungry (and thirsty) visitors and locals alike, there are a number of local pubs and family run restaurants in the town if you are not in the mood to visit the many big names on Middlebrook which also features a state of the art cinema multiplex for fans of the big screen.
