Many of you might of never heard of Ormskirk where Edge Hill is situated. I know I hadn’t before starting here! But little did I know there was so much exciting and interesting stuff to do in the surrounding region!
I know for me coming from a small town in the lake district, Edge Hill wasn’t to daunting to move too as the town itself is quite small so it was just like a home from home. However the option of the city lifestyle is also there for you with big cities such as Manchester and Liverpool practically on the doorstep! It also wasn’t too far for me to travel back home which was a reassuring thought when I first moved here.
Like I said big cities such as Manchester and Liverpool, are both practically on the doorstep. Both of these are great for nights out with some of the best clubs and pubs, and they both guarantee a great night out, I can assure you that you will not be disappointed! Shopping is also great in both with a wide range of boutique and major chain shops, but be careful you don’t blow your student loan, I know I’m always tempted! They are also home to some of the major north west football clubs so if you are an avid football supporter then it is not far to travel for matches at all, which is always a plus!
But these aren’t the only places surrounding Edge Hill- Southport, Wigan and Preston are close by and are all worth a visit! As these provide a lot of exciting new adventures for you too try when beginning your new student life!
Hopefully this has given you an insight to the great places that surround Edge Hill! I can guarantee you will definitely never be bored!!!
