Warrington

Warrington is right in the middle of the action, halfway between Liverpool and Manchester. The largest town in Cheshire, it’s on the cross-over point for the M6 and the M62, balanced on the edge of Cheshire, Lancashire, and Merseyside. Though it’s inland, it shares Liverpool’s maritime heritage, sitting at the head of the famous River Mersey, with the Manchester Ship Canal cutting a straight line through the south of the town before joining the Mersey at Runcorn. This is a busy and rewarding place to live, with a down-to-earth community spirit giving your new home a great foundation.

On the map

The M6 crosses the Mersey in high style, with an iconic road bridge carrying the motorway traffic north into Lancashire and south to Birmingham. The M62 intersects with the M6 at Junction 21A, providing east-west routes to Manchester and Liverpool. It’s 20 miles into central Liverpool, and much the same into central Manchester, making Warrington a great base for working in either city. Trains from Cheshire’s railway hub in Crewe pass through Warrington with services into Liverpool Lime Street and Manchester Piccadilly, as well as to Runcorn, Ellesmere Port and Birkenhead on the Wirral, as well as to Chester and north Wales. Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport has the edge, just 12 miles away, though Manchester Airport is a very convenient option, with the edge on the range of international destinations, just 18 miles away.

In town

Warrington’s shops and services put up stiff competition with Manchester and Liverpool’s retail reputations, and it’s got one of the larger shopping centres in the North West. IKEA chose Warrington as the location of its very first UK store. The Golden Square Shopping Centre is close to Warrington Central station, and there are edge of town retail parks, supermarkets, and superstores. One of the town’s great assets is Warrington Market, an award-winning market that’s home to more than 50 independent traders, all in a state-of-the-art facility in the new Time Square public space. The Cookhouse is the place to eat here, inside or outside on the terrace watching the world go by.

Out of town

Liverpool and Manchester might steal the limelight, especially for a night out, though Warrington has plenty of ideas of its own for entertainment and leisure. Gulliver’s World Theme Park is specially designed for toddlers up to early teens, it’s a family venue to the north of the town. Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden is somewhere a bit quieter, to the south, though its live jazz evenings are lively events. Historic Chester is well on the way to rural North Wales and the Snowdonia National Park for a complete change of scenery.
