In the town centre every Monday it’s market day (except bank holidays) where stall holders come together to sell a wide range of goods and local produce as well as jewellery, pet products, clothing and much more.
There are plenty of historical landmarks in Poulton such as the market cross and stocks in the town square that are next to an old stone table, used by fishmongers in the early days of the market.
While you are here, be sure not to miss the stunning St Chads church in the heart of the town with its surrounding gardens where records date it as far back as 1094. If are lucky enough to visit in early spring, seeing the stunning carpet of crocus flowers is a must.
There are plenty of chances to get active if sports are your thing. You don’t need to be a member to take advantage of the gym, pool and classes at Poulton YMCA leisure centre, visit their website to see what’s on during your stay.
Poulton is also home to a stunning 9-hole golf course with a bar overlooking the course and outdoor sheltered seating, perfect to spend some time with friends.
