The birthplace of George Formby, Heinz Baked Beans and Northern Soul, Wigan is nothing if not diverse. People here have never been afraid to experiment, and perhaps that applies to Wigan singles too. After all, plenty are trying the eHarmony dating website, from professional singles who don't have much time to otherwise meet new faces, to the romantic at heart looking for a relationship or a few fantastic dates.
But forget about eHarmony for a moment, what about the Wigan dating scene? The truth is, it's just as varied, and just as fun as the people who live there:
Located on Rivington Moor, and bordering the boroughs of Chorley, Blackburn, Darwen and Bolton, Winter Hill offers unrivaled panoramic views of surrounding Lancashire. It has a rich and varied history from the macabre to downright weird– (including numerous UFO sightings) - and the walk to the top is truly beautiful. If the weather’s nice it may even be worth packing a picnic and making the most of this free dating hotspot. The walk can be very steep in parts, so ensure that you and your date wear appropriate footwear and take warm clothing for when you reach the top.
One of the more famous Wigan landmarks has got to be that illustrious pier, made famous worldwide by author George Orwell in his novel – “The Road to Wigan Pier” – despite it being little more than a small jetty reaching out into the Leeds to Liverpool canal. A walk along the newly refurbished, traffic-free towpaths is a great chance for professional singles to unwind together after a busy week, whilst exploring Wigan’s rich industrial and natural heritage.
The town is home to more bars, pubs and clubs than many other places in the UK of comparable size and was home to the world famous Wigan Casino – the origin of Northern Soul. A simple drink in a bar or pub, can make for a lovely, natural first date option. With a little Dutch courage on your side, and in the relaxed setting of a non-too-busy pub, you’re free to explore conversational common ground with your date. If it’s a pre-dinner drink, this would be a great time to pinpoint particular themes that can be revisited later, so ask lots of questions. Bagging a snug corner in The Crown at Worthington, a hearty Country Inn in the Lancashire countryside is a great Wigan dating option. On the other hand, for something a little more central; (maybe better suited for those Wigan singles who don’t drive) The Raven, with its town centre location is ideal.
For some of the best online dating Wigan has to offer why not try eHarmony? Here we make matches based on shared aspirations, ambitions and values, making for a rock-solid foundation on which to build a relationship. It's free to review matches so aren't you curious to see who comes up? Try eHarmony today, and reach out for that special someone.
