The Emporium Clitheroe Tour

The Emporium Clitheroe

Clitheroe has many restaurants and eating establishments, one being the popular Emporium. This elegant building was a Wesleyan chapel built in the 1860s, and is now an elegantly styled brasserie, coffee shop and wine bar.

We have organised two special walking tours of Clitheroe, combined with a meal, taken before or after your tour at the Emporium.

The tours are ideal for groups to celebrate birthdays, Christmas, office parties, or indeed just friends getting together for a great day out.

Tour 1 - Heritage walking tour (one hour).

Visiting historic Clitheroe Castle with its splendid views across the Ribble Valley and the town.

This tour will also take you into the town centre and the historic Swan Courtyard and its link to Sir Frank Whittle, the man who pioneered the jet engine.

Heading towards Church Walk and passing through the town centre to St Marys Church.

Tour 2 - Traditional Ghost walk (One hour thirty minutes)

Ideal for evening parties, this tour will focus on the town’s connection with the English Civil War and the ghostly inhabitants of Clitheroe Castle. From the ramparts you will see the silhouette of one of our most famous hills, the infamous Pendle Hill and learn of the story of the 1612 Witch trials.

You will hear of the story of the Bashall Eaves murder of 1934 and of the Waddow Hall ghost 'Peg O’Nell' from 1794, the cotton riots in the town centre in 1879 and of the haunted taxi!
