Bolton | Area Guide

From history and heritage to breathtaking countryside

Bolton is a Town in Greater Manchester in North West England. A former mill town, Bolton has been a production centre for textiles since Flemish weavers settled in the area in the 14th century, introducing a wool and cotton-weaving tradition.

As at the latest Census in 2011, the total population of Bolton was 276,800.

Bolton has a lot to offer from museums jam packed with ancient artifacts to breathtaking countryside and everything else in between, award winning attractions, behind the scenes tours, fast paced sport and leisurely country walks.
