Why Lancasters love Westhoughton… Set just 4 miles from Bolton town centre, and 5 miles from Wigan town centre, Westhoughton has all it needs to provide local convenience to its residents. The town centre has an abundance of pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops, even with a number of supermarkets and its very own indoor market, which opens on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. New modern eateries, delis and bars seem to be thriving in the town too. It is also worth noting that Westhoughton boasts good primary and high schools, which are within close reach and underpin the family friendly area. With easy access to surrounding towns such as; Hindley, Atherton and Leigh, this makes the perfect location for good transport links for those working just outside of the Bolton Borough.
