Live the Blackburn life
With plenty happening in town and in a selection of neighbouring places, as well as miles of wild natural scenery to explore nearby, you can look forward to an exciting way of life in Blackburn. And what better way to start that off than by securing a great offer on a new home? That’s exactly what you get when you take up an offer like our Part Exchange scheme, which could save you lots of time and stress - as well as money - if you have an existing home to sell.
Things to see and do in Blackburn
The centre of town is packed with great ways to spend your time. From the Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery to the town’s cathedral, the giant Funtazia indoor play centre is perfect for little ones. Corporation Park is another great feature of the town centre, tracing its history back to 1857, while Blackburn Rovers’ Ewood Park stadium is in the south of town.
On the edge of town, you’ll find even bigger natural spaces to explore. Whether you’re going for walks around Witton Country Park or hitting the mountain bike trails at Billinge Wood, there are also lots of local reservoirs to provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing stroll. And when you really want to lose yourself in nature, you can head into the Forest of Bowland or over to the Yorkshire Dales.
Blackburn is a great place to live if you have children, with local primaries Wensley Fold CofE and St Barnabas and St Paul’s CofE both rated as outstanding by Ofsted. There are plenty more good primaries in and around town, while top secondaries include Tauheedul Islam Boys’ High School and Tauheedul Islam Girls’ High School, which are both outstanding. Pleckgate High School is also in the education board’s top bracket.
Blackburn transport links
The M65 motorway runs just to the south of Blackburn, while it’s not far to the M6 to the west. Preston is only around 25 minutes away in the car, while it’s approximately double that to Manchester and Liverpool. Blackburn’s train station is close to the town centre, with services to Preston and Manchester similar to the journey by road.
The Blackburn property scene
Property prices in Blackburn have been rising faster than the rest of the country in recent years, but this remains an affordable place to live. Prices are still substantially lower than the UK average, and also significantly lower than across the rest of Lancashire. This is all great news if you’re buying in the area, with the potential for your investment to pay dividends in the future.
With that in mind, don’t miss out on the 2, 3 and 4 bedroom new build homes in the Barrow area just north of town, which offer contemporary living within a traditional design and a beautiful Ribble Valley setting.
