Rivington Services

We re-opened our state of the art motorway services area on the M61 in Lancashire in May 2011 following an 18-month, multi-million pound investment programme.

Previously known as Bolton West, we have demolished much of the old northbound and southbound sites, creating one of the UK’s leading motorway services facilities with brand new forecourts, amenity buildings and facilities.

Now you’ll find premium brands such as Starbucks, Subway, Spar and Burger King in our glazed foodcourt areas, brand new convenience stores, a wide range of quality facilities and carefully landscaped grounds offering relaxing outdoor dining.
