Botany Bay (England) Reviews
Newest Review: ... arcade. They include handbag shops, a pet shop, and my personal favourite, a traditional sweetshop. Many of the shops are un-staffed, meaning that you'll need to find someone to pay for anything you wish to purchase, but they make an excellent and relaxing place to stroll and to browse in peace. The first floor sells gifts, garden products and kitchenware, including home-made preserves in beautiful jars, curry sauces, chocolates and biscuits, and beautiful ornaments, whilst the second floor sells furniture from around the world, including wonderful hand-crafted beds and dining tables. Clothing for men and women can be found on the ... more

I've been visiting Botany Bay once or twice a year for the past three or four. My two aunts are a fan of the place, and we make a point of taking trips there to stroll around occasionally. Botany Bay is a five-storey shopping centre set within an old mill. Inside, you'll find a children's play area (Puddletown Pirates), various traditional market shops and stalls of various sizes selling craft products, gifts, toys and accessories, and a few small tea room style restaurants. The ground floor shops are in the theme of a Dickensian arcade. They include handbag shops, a pet shop, and my personal favourite, a traditional sweetshop. Many of the shops are ...

The saying goes "bring all the family down to botany bay". no thanks i'd rather not. Botany bay is based alongside the m61 in chorley, its a huge old building with about 4 levels high. Its full of shops ranging from antiques to crafts, the shops are ok, nothing special but you do have to pay to get in just to look round. thats the big downside for me, why should you pay to look round shops? 1st Floor... A mixture of giftware, ethnic products and collectables from present day through to yesteryear lead through to the kitchen area, where we have from pots and pans, cookware to glassware and kitchen accessories etc. 2nd ...

******Introduction***** As Christmas is looming, it has always been a tradition with me and my family to visit Botany Bay. We love to buy unique gifts that are hand made for each other as stocking fillers.

Each of these shops are rented by independent companies, these can be large well know companies or small one man ... Read the complete review

After working every weekend for the last 5 and a half years and hearing what everybody else did I now make the most of having free weekends so try and do something every weekend. Sounds ideal, except to get the free weekends I was made redundant, so maybe not as great as I've made it sound. One place I have always wanted to go is Botany Bay. The TV adverts always make it look like a great place to visit. All those shops under the one roof selling a multitude of things, that is heaven to me. So I was really looking forward to visiting last weekend. It is situated in Chorley, Lancashire, just off junction 8 of the M61. You can't miss in when driving on the ... Read the complete review

Readers may associate Botany Bay with the penal colony formed by the British in 1788 on the northern shores of the south-eastern suburbs of Sydney - Australia where hundreds of prisoners were transported for their wrongdoing. Here on home soil situated on the outskirts of the small Lancashire town of Chorley is Britain’s own version of a very different type of venue. Botany Bay is a magically transformed disused cotton-spinning mill dating back to 1865 which has now become a major tourist attraction. Throughout the five floors at Botany Bay there are thousands of intriguing artefacts and unique pieces of memorabilia either in displays ... Read the complete review
