About Our Macdonald Hotel in Wigan

On the River Douglas, this town in Greater Manchester has a character all of its own. Stay in our hotel near to Wigan and get acquainted. Of course, there's sport, particularly Rugby League and the famous Wigan Warriors. They share a stadium with 'The Lactics', nickname of Wigan Athletic Premier League football club.

There's plenty of entertainment off the pitch too. Wigan has a vibrant local music scene whose roots go right back to the legendary Wigan Casino, praised as the 'best disco in the world' in the 70's. You can explore an even more distant history at a number of places.

The Wigan Pier on the banks of the Leeds and Liverpool canal is one, named after George Orwell's famous book. The pier has a heritage centre that displays an authentic slice of Lancashire life, from school to factory, home to coal mine. The Wigan Pier Theatre Company tells the fascinating story of the pier and life in the mills. Nearby, the Trencherfield Mill has what's claimed to be the world's largest working mill steam engine.
