Visit Lancashire describes Accrington as a vibrant town in the heart of Pennine Lancashire. Apparently is has fabulous independent boutiques and a 21st century Arndale Shopping Centre, don’t you know. Well our contributors see it a little differently:
The town isn’t full of bad point’s. There is a Poundland, home bargains, Iceland, Netto and Aldi. Get my drift? This is as good as it gets…
Do not visit this dump, there’s nothing remotley interesting. Never associate with the general raised trash here and if you are a positive person like me, this place can suck the life out of you literally!
There is a big dirty banner down the middle of Broadway (Accrington’s main “shopping” street) which is supposed to be in honour of the Accrington Pals, but it is so dirty and weathered that to now just looks like a grey tarpaulin.
