A trip to Worsley offers the perfect day out. Set in a leafy village environment you can leisurely explore the beautiful canalside walks alongside the world famous Bridgewater Canal or experience the beautiful Worsley Woods.
Worsley hides a fascinating heritage too though, so look out for the brown plaques, browse the heritage section of this website or follow the route of the self-guided heritage trail. The village's restaurants and pubs make it an ideal place to visit for Sunday lunch with the papers, afternoon tea (download our new tea trail booklet) or a romantic meal for two. Or if you're into sport the local golf courses are well worth a visit.
It is also ideally located for easy access to nearby bustling Salford Quays and Manchester city centre.
