splashout's Qype profile
Wallgate, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN1 1BJ
Wigan North Western railway station is one of the main railway stations in the centre of Wigan. This station has trains going all around the country at regular intervals. The station itself has a cafe selling hot drinks, sandwiches and other snacks, however prices can work out quite expensive. The price of train tickets can vary massivly, depending on how far in advance you book your ticket, this means that if you book your ticket early enough, you can travel to London from just £10 (asof 26 Nov 2008)
New Market St, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN1 1SE
The Tudor pub is a very popular pub, especially with the student market, as the nearby Wigan and Leaigh College is accross the road. Food is sold at very reasonable prices, with a bowl of chips and a bread bap for just £1. There is a great atmosphere, and you can chose the music you want. I reccomend this for a lively and enjoyable night.
Makinson Arcade, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN1 1PL
This bakery in the center of wigan (the pie eating capital of the world) was once very good value for money, but with the current economical climate prices are now close to extortionate, costing around £1.10 for a meat and potato pie. The food itself is made to a decent standard, but is not worth the money.
10 Wigan Square, The Galleries, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN1 1AW
Morrisons in wigan has recently been improved and has seen great changes since my first visit. Prices are very competative, costing just 88p for a cheese and onion sandwich (asof 25 Nov 2008.) Thanks to recent improvements this shop is now a very pleasurable shop to shop in.
Wallgate, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN1 1BJ
Wigan Wallgate train station is one of the main train stations in Wigan. Compared to the other main station in Wigan, it has become quite outdated and delapadated. fares are very cheap if traveling in Greater Manchester costing just £3 for an off-peak adult return to Manchester. You can also buy a Greater Manchester Rail Ranger for £3.90, giving you unlimited travel in and around Greater Manchester. Wouldn’t go to the toilets to save my life, they are horrable!
Loire Drive, Robin Park, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN5 0UH
The JJB Stadium is home to Wigan Athletic Football Club and Wigan Warriors Rugby League. Ticket prices are cheap for a premiership game, costing around £15. Food however can work out quite expensive, but on the plus side there is more than just pies to choose from. VERY CLEAN!
Wigan, Greater Manchester WN2 1PE
Love Haigh Country Park. Haigh Contry Park is situated in wigan at the suitably named Haigh Hall. Haigh Hall is used for all kinds of functions, from weddings to bussiness.
It’s a great place to go with the family. Theres a minture railway (which takes you around the park), lots of open land (suitable for playing football and other games), a cafe (great for snacks and drinks), lots of woodland, and numerous play grounds (for kids to run wild and burn off energy)
It is easily accessable by car when using one of the numerous car parks. By bike when using the canal, and foot when using one of the pulic entrances.
Great place, and it’s on so many peoples doorsteps!
Orrell Road, Orrell Lodge Orrell, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN5 8HJ
Local radio station for WIgan and St Helens. They brodcast as part of UTV Radio, meaning that a lot of thier programmes (mainly at night) are networked to save money. The main genre of music broadcast is modern-soft and music from the 90’s. Wish FM often make a lot of basic errors, like not being in time for the news so there are big silences and occasionaly playing adverts over the news (all when the station is networked.) Having said that, not bad in day time , and well worth the listen.

4 Anjou Boulevard, Robin Park, Wigan, Greater Manchester WN5 0UL
Brilliant Multi-Screen Cinema near Robin Park Retail Park and Asda. Entrance prices are very competative, epecialy on tuesdays when all standard tickets are £4 (correct asof 23 Nov 2008.)
Food and drink once in the cinema can work work out quite costly, most people go to the nearby asda supermarket before going to the cinema, but be warned they don’t like you doing that!
