Whilst in your motorhome that you have hired from Easicampers from our Manchester city centre depot why not take in the scenic views of the West Pennine Hills.
Jump in your motorhome and head north on the M60 motorway which skirts round Manchester city centre and head towards Bolton more in particular the village of
Rivington which lies on the most westerly point of the Pennines. Whatever time of year you visit here there is always something going on. There are motorbike rallies every Sunday where thousands of bikers converge on the main barn car park for a catch up and a bite to eat. In the autumn it’s one of the best locations to find conkers/horse chestnuts.
At any time of year if you’re an avid hill climber or walker then Rivington offers woodland walks and up what the locals call Winter Hill due to the fact if any snow arrives it hits this land mark first. In clear weather conditions, it also offers views of Blackpool Tower, Snaefell in the Isle of Man, the Cumbrian Mountains,
Snowdonia in North Wales, Liverpool, Southport, the Irish Sea, Peak District, the Pennines and much of the North West of England. On a clear day the summit offers a view of four national parks – The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Peak District and Snowdonia.
After a day walking up hills and round woodland it’s time to leave Rivington Pike and head east to the traditional industrial market town of Bury located north of Manchester City centre. The world famous open air market is open every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday and is famous for its local delicacy Black Pudding.
The most famous resident who hailed from Bury was Sir Robert Peel who was the British Prime Minister who founded the Metropolitan Police and Conservative Party. The Peel Memorial stands outside Bury parish church and the Peel Monument stands on Holcombe Hill in Rams bottom, overlooking the borough.
After purchasing your food for the night it’s time to head back to your motorhome and find somewhere to stay for the night. The advantages of a hire motorhome is that you can find an abundance of camp sites that are a lot cheaper than staying in a hotel and most of them are electric sites so you can hook up your vehicle.
After a relaxing sleep in your motorhome head south down the M66 towards Heaton Park which is located just 5 miles north of Manchester City Centre. The park has a large boating lake which you can hire out pedaloes or canoes and take a trip around the park. There are activities on here at the barn and a small animal centre which is home to small animals and an arts and craft centre.
