Open/Close Menu Wigan Youth Zone is a purpose built, state-of-the-art youth facility in Wigan town centre which opened in June 2013.


Tuesday 5th July marked a historic day for local youth facility Wigan Youth Zone, with a visit from none other than Prince Harry.

The visit was kept top secret but there was still plenty of excited young people to welcome Harry into the Youth Zone and show him around the purpose-built facility, based in the centre of Wigan.

The Prince heard from members of the youth zone including some Young Leaders, volunteers between 14 and 17 who help out at the centre in their spare time.
During his visit, the 31-year old prince took a tour of the climbing wall, boxing gym and art room – hearing about the work being done in each area to engage more young people and teach them new skills.

Prince Harry joins a strong list of famous faces who have taken the time to visit Wigan Youth Zone including David Cameron and Prince Edward.

Check out some snaps from the Prince’s visit!
