Chorley covered market is an historical gem not to be missed. On Tuesday there are also market stalls throughout the streets around the market. A really great time to visit the market.

Hi there is blue badge parking on the flat iron next to the main town centre and near to the markets - Tuesday has an outdoor market too so it is the best day :)

The Covered Market is open every day apart from Wednesday and Sunday but the main market day with a big outdoor market too is Tuesday.
