Known locally as Beartown, the pretty market town of Congleton is located in south-east Cheshire, the town is about halfway between Manchester and Stoke, perfectly placed for a weekend getaway to Cheshire’s Peak District.

Congleton is well known for its festivals, flowers, ribbons, beers and bears!

Experience our beautiful Victorian park, opened to the public in 1871 and bordered by the River Dane and Park wood. The town boasts its own theatre showcasing several local theatre groups and films alike and an outdoor paddling pool (booking restrictions apply)

Congleton is set in some of the most scenic countryside around so if walking is of interest, enjoy a gentle stroll along the Macclesfield Canal, a circular walk around Astbury Mere Country Park or enjoy the splendid views from Bosley Cloud.

Discover Congleton’s hidden history by visiting Congleton Museum then sit back and relax in one of Congleton’s many cafés and restaurants or try a beer in one of our 29 pubs selling real ale. Download a copy of the Ale Trail
