About Warrington

About Warrington

Warrington is a town in Cheshire, England. Set between Liverpool and Manchester, it was famous for its canvas industry in the 18th century. The town was also home to the the US Air Force's largest airfield outside the US. Despite being a modern town, Warrington holds many remnants of its history at its museums, town hall, and heritage buildings. Thanks to the River Mersey's proximity, the area hosted several Bronze Age and Roman settlements, whose presence is still evidenced today.

What to see in Warrington

Visit Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, one of the country’s oldest municipal museums. Located above the Warrington Central Library on Bold Street, the art, ethnography, archaeology, and natural history museum houses nearly 200,000 objects. You'll also want to stop by at the town hall or look for ‘Dream’, a huge sculpture by Jaume Plensa. Bargain-hunters and window shoppers will want to check out Buttermarket, Horsemarket, Sankey, and Bridge Streets, Warrington's main shopping areas. And be sure to check the town's calendar of events – it hosts several annual festivals, including the Appleton Thorn Bawming of the Thorn, a tree believed to be an offshoot of the Holy Thorn at Glastonbury. The tree-decorating event brings vibrant singing and dancing.

If you’re on holiday with your family, treat the kids to exciting attractions at Gulliver’s World Theme Park or Apple Jacks Adventure Farm, which offers shows, rides, and a large playground with a maze. Relax at Walton Hall & Gardens or see the medieval ruins at Norton Priory Museum & Gardens. Don’t miss the great views along the Manchester Ship Canal, the lush greenery at Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden, or the rare pipe organ by renowned French organ builder Aristide Cavaillé-Coll at Parr Hall. Other significant landmarks to see include Holy Trinity Church and Old St Ann’s Church.. Rugby fans should also check if there’s a game at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, home to the Warrington Wolves.
