You have no shortage of choice when it comes to dining out, drinking the night away or finding quality produce or special gifts. What Darwen lacks in large high street brands it makes up for with it’s abundance of independent businesses, service providers and glorious countryside.
What makes it always worth a visit however is the friendly welcome. The Darwen spirit and sense of community is stronger than ever and for anyone unfamiliar with the Darwen way, be prepared to be treated like family.
Darwen is the kind of special place that you only really find out how amazing it is when you speak to the people, so here they are. We’re sharing the stories, businesses and recommendations of the people of Darwen, giving you your very own insider’s guide.
