My second home

Ah, Wigan. Not top of the tourist's list, but it's were my family come from. Or the better half anyway....

I've never lived here, but I spend many many days over here visiting family and watching rugby games. Some things are in the blood no matter where you're born.

I've got a couple of favourite places. They might not mean much to you, but they mean a lot to me.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Rugby and family links, Wigan Pier, Haigh Hall
  • Cons:OK, so it's not a major tourist hotspot, but there's more there than you think
  • In a nutshell:Part of me, down to my core.

    Completely agree...Don't pay their debts to their performers and to me the place is a health and safety hazard just glad i'm not the only one who thinks so Hope You Agree Brother Musician

    Helen, I just love your Wigan tips - so vividly written - I just wish, you had some pictures as well, so that I could remember a little of this place! It has been 30 years now, since I last visited!
