If it’s a clear day, you can get some great views of Wigan from the Hall, then you have the high ropes for the more adventurous in your party, or there is an adventure golf area also. You can finish your adventures back at the Courtyard where there are a few restaurants selling hot & cold food and drinks. It’s a great day out for the whole family.
