The Ribble Valley Jubilee Trail

The Ribble Valley

The Ribble Valley is a genuine walker’s paradise. This unspoiled corner of rural East Lancashire has it all: gentle rolling countryside, wooded river valleys and some challenging hill walks for those with an appetite for adventure.

These stunning landscapes are criss-crossed with footpaths and bridleways and there’s a huge selection of circular walks – ranging from riverside rambles and gentle afternoon ambles through scenic villages, to challenging mini-mountains offering stunning views for the more energetically inclined.

The Ribble Valley Jubilee Trail winds its way through many of the area’s most scenic locations: from the rolling pastureland of the Ribble and Hodder valleys to the summit of mighty Pendle Hill – offering outstanding panoramic views stretching for miles around.

And after working up a healthy appetite amid the stunning scenery of the Ribble Valley, what better way to reward your exertions than with a hearty meal at one of the region’s many gastropubs and characterful country inns?

The Valley’s bustling market towns and picturesque villages are home to some of the best gastropubs in Britain, with outstanding eateries like the Spread Eagle at Sawley, the Coach and Horses at Bolton by Bowland and unique Swan with Two Necks at Pendleton winning a string of local and national awards for their food and hospitality.
