Warrington, a city in the North West county of Cheshire in England, is a large town and home to the River Mersey. Neighbouring two major British cities, Manchester and Liverpool, and the scenic Peak District national park, this town offers a wealth of both maritime and wartime history, as well as an extraordinary shopping scene and excellent transport links. The town plays a huge part in the history of metalwork, dating back to the 19th century which can be seen in the array of historical buildings. As one of the North’s most famous towns, Warrington has become a key player in the vital industries for this area, and a hub for business, trade and culture. Bank Quay train station has direct links to both London Euston and Edinburgh, and Central trains go to East Anglia and Manchester. 

Those visiting Warrington for a spot of retail therapy will not be disappointed, as it is home to the impressive 135 store strong Golden Shopping centre, opened in 1974, as well as being close proximity to The Trafford Centre. Interestingly, Warrington is home to the UK’s first IKEA and the biggest Marks and Spencer outside of London. For something more unique, the outdoor Warrington Market has 130 independent stalls offering a great range of fresh produce and products, from beauty to books. There is plenty else to keep you entertained in Warrington, including nearby theme park Gulliver’s World, a ten-pin bowling alley and a golf driving range.

Warrington’s Cultural Quarter offers the Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, as well as the Museum of Policing, and the Warrington Museum of Freemasonry. It is also home to a concert hall, Parr Hall, and an art centre, The Pyramid, as well as a wealth of public libraries and parks. Sports fans will be pleased to hear the town is home to the Warrington Wolves rugby league team, known as “The Wire”. This name comes from the town’s aforementioned history of metalwork, specifically, wire making. There’s also Warrington Town Football Club, also nicknamed The Wire. Last but not least, Warrington also homes an athletics club and a rowing club, the latter of which has given us a number of Olympic rowers! 

There are a number of great spots to spend the evening in Warrington, including cocktail bars, nightclubs and restaurants. The town also has a great nightlife for students, thanks to the University of Cheshire campus nearby. There’s also a wealth of traditional British pubs for some good food and authentic ale.
