West Lancashire Borough Council Homepage


 Ormskirk is a lively market town which combines history and character with excellent shopping and thriving local industry. It is a popular destination for shoppers with the bustling Charter Market each Thursday and Saturday.


The market town serves a mainly agricultural area of very high quality land and the town, which has excellent rail links, has increasingly become home to people who work in nearby Liverpool.

Ormskirk is the civic heart of West Lancashire and is home of the borough council offices and the area's general hospital. Edge Hill University is also renowned as a higher education centre.


Sight-seeing or shopping, eating out or exercising in the park, Ormskirk offers something for everyone, at all times.
