Bolton is historically part of Lancashire, originating from a small settlement in the moorland known as Bolton le Moors. During the English Civil War, the town became known for its Parliamentarian views despite its location in a staunchly Royalist region. Unfortunately, this led to the Bolton Massacre of 1644. Yet, in time, the community recovered and continued to flourish.

Much of Bolton’s development coincided with the introduction of textile manufacture during the Industrial Revolution. By the 19th century, it had become a boomtown with dozens of cotton mills scattered across its boundaries.

Britain’s cotton industry declined sharply after the First World War, but today that doesn’t stop anyone spending time at an Afternoon Tea Bolton venue.
