1. Lower house prices

One huge selling point for Lancashire is the lower house prices. As the north-south divide widens, more and more people are realising the value of living up north.

Not only do people pay less, but they also get more for their money. With bigger spaces, including private parking, secure garages and even more garden space, what’s not to like? 

2. Family friendly

Lancashire is also a great place to raise a family, with access to fantastic primary and secondary school systems and also a range of top universities.

In the small villages outside the city, there is also a greater sense of community and friendly atmosphere. Perfect for young families trying to find a place to settle.

3. Beautiful green spaces

Want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city? Look no further than Lancashire – known for its ‘green and pleasant land’

Close to the wonderful Lake District and the beauty of the Yorkshire dales, you’re never far away from a picturesque walk or traditional pub roast. Enjoy a Sunday stroll or longer country hike.

4. Close to great cities

Don’t worry. It’s not all sleepy villages and green spaces, Lancashire is also close to two of Britain’s greatest cities. With fantastic transport links, you can jump on a train to either Manchester or Liverpool and enjoy everything the cities have to offer.

Whether it’s the magical music scene of Manchester or the wonders of Liverpool docks, there’s something for everyone.

5. Top entertainment

Are you a foodie? A theatre buff? Or a big football fan? Whatever your tastes, Lancashire has access to it all. Connected to the bustling cities with some of the biggest venues, there’s never a dull moment up north.

With great restaurants, bustling nightlife and fantastic sport teams, there’s something for everyone. All that remains is whether you’re red or blue…?
