Top 100 Attractions Review

Ten years ago when I thought about writing these books, I would never have thought I would be featuring a garden centre as one of my Top 100 Attractions. But we are not just talking about any old garden centre. Normally, garden centres have two busy periods, Spring and Christmas, but not here! Barton Grange is busy every day of the year and just goes to show why it has earned its way into this book, even the toilets here are a visitor attraction. With everything from a farm shop, furniture and home décor shop, together with its own marina, just to name but a few, this attraction is worth travelling at least 100 miles to get to.

Attraction

Barton Grange Garden Centre

The award-winning Barton Grange Garden Centre, on the A6 at Brock between Preston and Garstang, was named Destination Garden Centre of the Year in 2012 & 2013. From the entrance, through to the plant area, restaurants and even the toilets, the garden centre oozes style and originality. The outdoor plant area has a weather sensitive roof so you can shop for plants even when it's raining. The houseplant department has an impressive gazebo with masses of colour beneath and the displays throughout are stunning. There's a Cook Shop selling professional cookware and kitchenware, plus stylish home décor, giftware and awardwinning Christmas displays between October and December. The self service Riverside Café and table service WillowsRestaurant provide a choice of eating options.Finally, the Farm Shop offers individually sourced local produce and other speciality foods. It has a butchery, bakery, fresh fruit and vegetables and a sweet shop selling confectionery and luxury chocolates.
