Warrington’s top attractions

The Cheshire town of Warrington is located on the banks of the River Mersey, less than 19 miles away from the popular city of Liverpool. However, it is a wonderful place to visit in its own right.

As well as there being lots of great hotels near Warrington, there are a number of fantastic attractions, which will keep every member of the family happy, whether staying near the town for a day or a week.

Here are just a few of the best attractions in Warrington:

Gulliver’s World

Gulliver’s World is a fun-filled family theme park that can be found in a forest just to the west of Warrington. The site boasts an impressive wooden rollercoaster, a pretty man-made lake, and several small child-friendly rides.

The park is divided into nine separate sections, including Alice’s Wonderland, Water World, and The Lost World, ensuring that all children, whatever their interests may be, are well catered for.

Warrington Museum & Art Gallery

The town is also a great place for anyone who likes to soak in a bit of culture. The Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, in particular, is wonderful for basking in the wonders of the artistic world. The museum is located in Warrington’s Cultural Quarter on Bold Street. The building itself is Grade II listed and features some pretty impressive architecture, but it is the museum’s collection, which covers a wide range of subjects from botany to Roman Britain, that makes this attraction a must-see.

Walton Hall Gardens

Close to some of the best Warrington accommodation, Walton Hall Gardens are open to the public and provide a great place to relax and commune with the natural world. Consisting of beautiful formal gardens, as well as a children’s zoo and a crazy golf area, it is easy to spend a whole day in the grounds of Walton Hall, which you may also recognise from the BBC TV show Our Zoo.

Stretton Watermill

This is one for the history buffs, as it’s a working watermill that was first recorded in 1351, although the oldest parts of the building in its present form only date back to 1630. The Stretton Watermill site now operates as a museum. Open on several days during the summer, guided tours and an education service is available for visitors to learn more about the mill.

Apple Jacks Adventure Park

Apple Jacks is a family-friendly farm with lots of attractions to keep everyone happy, including a maize maze, café, roller rink, and an adventure hayride, making for a great day out for active kids.
