About Us

Warrington has been welcoming visitors for over 2000 years.

It's location is a big plus. It’s close to Liverpool and Manchester and within easy reach of the Peak District, North Wales and the Lake District even the Trans-Pennine Trail passes through the borough.

Today, you’ll find a busy town centre with great shopping on offer including Golden Square, home to all the major brands under one roof.

Out of town retail parks feature mega-stores galore including the first IKEA in Britain.

Looking for independent outlets?

Head for Stockton Heath where fabulous boutiques flourish alongside a delicious choice of restaurants.

Warrington really knows how to entertain, amuse and inform too.

Its Museum and Art Gallery chart the development of the town and showcases contemporary and specialist street art exhibitions.

Nearby Pyramid and Parr Hall regularly host an array of music concerts and family-friendly shows for all tastes and ages all year.

Warrington is rightly famous for being at the heart of Rugby League and The Halliwell Jones Stadium is home to the mighty Warrington Wolves who carry everything before them.

They won the Challenge Cup again in 2012 and hosted matches in the Rugby League World Cup in 2013.

Events, fetes and festivals take place throughout the year across the area including, Warrington Walking Day, classic car shows, the annual contemporary arts festival, farmers and themed markets - and even a welly-wanging competition!

Warrington is also blessed with fabulous parks, glorious canals and wonderful countryside too just waiting to be explored including Rixton Claypits, Lymm Dam, Risley Moss, Woolston Eyes and Appleton Dingle.

Must-see attractions include Walton Hall and Gardens (home to a delightful children’s zoo) and Gulliver’s World theme park with its fabulous hotel.

Don’t miss the Golden Gates of the Town Hall during your visit and make time too for a visit to Daresbury Church with its Alice in Wonderland stained glass windows – a fitting tribute to children’s author Lewis Carroll who was born in the nearby village.

It all makes Warrington the ideal place for an unforgettable short break. Find a list of hotels in Warrington here.
