Happy 2007 all!! I trust we are all recovered from our New Years? and if you aren't well then...excellent partying!!

So I wanted to start a new topic that I am curious about. The cost of things in Wigan.
I am curious as to what you all can tell me about costs of housing,food,entertainment and such.

I almost freaked out when I heard that a pint of beer there is around five this so? One pound is about two dollars here.

I just need an idea as to just how much I will need when I get over to see that beautiful town.

Have a most awesome day everyone

Goose Green labour club £1-83 pint of mild £1-84 pint of bitter, look around up town cheaper in some places,Moon under Water is very nice and cheap beer,go to the night clubs you'll pay a lot more. So your looking four dollar fifty to five dollars per pint. Food very reasonable in cafes and restuarants,you will be o-k. If not Billy will lend you a few quid. Also Goose Green have some very good bands on stage Saturday nights but check it out first before you go.
