Trains to Bolton

The original train station, opened in 1871, was Bolton Trinity Street. It was all but demolished in the 1980s, although the iconic Victorian clock tower – a landmark in the town for over a century – was dismantled and rebuilt next to the modern-day Bolton station. Located in the centre of town, easing transport links to and from the town centre, the station was pivotal in increasing the tourism industry of Bolton, which rose from £371 million in 2012 to £394 million in 2013. People travel to Bolton drawn by its status as a hive of cultural activity; the Octagon Theatre and Bolton Museum and Art Gallery offer visitors intellectual escapism. The latter also houses many artifacts of the town’s textile industry, paying homage to Bolton’s cotton-spinning past and the 14th-century Flemish settlers that introduced the tradition of weaving to the locals.
