Wigan Things to Do: 25 reviews and 41 photos
Today Wigan Pier is a popular tourist attraction housing a museum of the "Way we Were" - a history of Wigan's former industrial life and lifestyle. It features a resident theatre company to act out various scenes and apparently the victorian classroom where you can sit with your slates is quite popular. You think it would be open on a Saturday though wouldn't you...but no, opeing times are Mon - Thurs 10am - 5pm and Sun. 11am -5 pm and Fri - Sat it is closed...so we saved our money for another day....
Ticket prices seem a bit costly at £5.25 (£4.25 for local residents, nice that they gat a discount) but that also included the entrance fee to the Steam engine exhibit acrosss the canal at Trencherfield Mill - see later tip. If you don't want to see this then admission to just the Way we Were" is £3.95.
Discounts are also availbale for groups of 4 - just check a ther ticket shop which suits you best.
Directions: Fom Wigan Northwestern station turn left and follow the brown tourist signs
