Warrington Rundown

Warrington began life as part of Lancashire, but in 1974 was formally declared part of the New Borough of Warrington in Cheshire, having been designated a New Town in 1968. Warrington’s ‘new’ status is, however in direct contradiction with its ancient history, its close proximity to Liverpool and Manchester, plus its strategic position on the banks of the River Mersey ensuring its importance from Roman times onwards.

The armies of Oliver Cromwell and the Earl of Derby stationed themselves here, and Cromwell’s Cottage is where he was believed to have stayed. Armed forces once again came to Warrington during the Second World War, when Burtonwood RAF base became the largest US Army Air Force base outside the United States, making it quite the celeb hangout with Humphrey Bogart and Bob Hope paying a visit to cheer up GIs. Famous Warringtonians include cheeky chappie George Formby, Tim Curry (just a sweet transvestite) and DJ Chris Evans.

Despite its close proximity to some of the biggest retail outlets in the UK, Warrington holds its own with a huge out of town Retail Park, Gemini. Rugby league is the premier sport – the Warrington Wolves having moved to the new Halliwell Jones Stadium.

10. All Saints Church Famous for its glass window depicting an Alice in Wonderland nativity scene.

5. Speedkarting Warrington Take a lap, Shumacher-style, at the UK’s only 3 level karting track.

4. Apple Jacks Farm Adventure Park Fed up with the family? Lose them in the maze.

8. Warrington’s Pyramid and Parr Hall No Egyptians but culture galore, with the best comedy, theatre, music and more.

6. Walton Hall Gardens Beautiful and ornamental plus a kid’s zoo too.

1. Warrington Museum & Art Gallery Including an interactive ‘Time Tunnel’ and Warrington’s very own dinosaur.

WARRINGTON EVENTS

There’s fun for everyone at Warrington’s Stockton Heath Festival in May. Four days of live music, comedy theatre and live music.

Walton Hall Gardens in Warrington hosts a Country Fayre in September with crafts, funfair and authentic re-enactments abound.

Warrington’s Runcorn Festival in July has a lovely local feel with a colourful parade, morris dancers, marching bands and of course the crowning of the carnival queen.

The motor-mad should head to the Classic Transport show in July. With over 100 vintage vehicles from Ford Prefects to classic Cadillacs, this is Warrington’s premier car event.

Get a pint of ‘Wobbly Bob’ beer down you at the Oktoberfest in (you guessed it) October. There are plenty of other events at Warrington’s brilliant real ale festival.

The Warrington Music Festival takes place in July for eight days of gigs all over town plus a grand finale that transforms the marketplace with a big stage and live bands.

There’s gourmet grub aplenty at Warrington’s Arts Celebration Day in July. Fun for all with music,
