The town is famous for being home to Oswaldtwistle Mills, an award-winning shopping village which has a huge selection of treats and gifts to suit any occasion. The former weaving mill has over 100 retailers, including an impressive womenswear department with over 40 popular brands. There’s also a new home & lifestyle centre, crafts centre, homewares, furniture, lighting, unique giftware, a gourmet deli selling locally-made food, and much more. You'll be in need of refreshment after all that shopping so there’s a good choice of places to eat and drink.
