Wigan is historically part of Lancashire. Long before then, however, it was the territory of a Celtic tribe known as the Brigantes. Following the Roman conquest of Britain during the 1st century, the Roman settlement of Coccium was established where Wigan now lies.
Historians believe that Wigan had been incorporated as a borough in 1246. This took place after the issue of a charter by King Henry III. Centuries later, the Industrial Revolution led to dramatic economic expansion of the local area, as well as a rapid rise in population.
Wigan is today a thriving town with much to offer tourists from far and wide. Indeed, it boasts several sights and landmarks well worth visiting. After working up an appetite, though, you’re going to want to stop at an Afternoon Tea Wigan establishment.
