Just yards from both of Wigan's railway stations is Wigan Central, situated in railway arches. This bar aims to provide good beers and ciders “from across the region and beyond”. Named after a long-closed railway station, it is decorated in British Railways livery and along one wall there are train seats with overhead luggage racks. Electronic screens show the train arrivals and departures in the nearby stations. Another similar screen shows which beers are likely to depart soon as the casks run out, and what their replacement new arrivals will be.
