Warrington and Lymm were listed in The Sunday Times’ 101 Best Places to Live in Britain 2014 who said ‘..the connections are second to none’.
When businesses are asked about their reasons for moving to Warrington, the town’s geographical location and excellent transport links rank amongst the most important.
Warrington is situated at the heart of the regional motorway network, with quick and easy access throughout the region and the wider UK via the M62, M6, M56, M57 and M58. This has been a key factor in making the town an important distribution hub.
Rail links are also outstanding. There are frequent services to London via the West Coast Main Line, with a travel time of less than two hours. East-west rail links are also excellent, with the Trans Pennine Express service link the town to Liverpool, Manchester and Leeds. Travel times to both Liverpool and Manchester are just 30-minutes.
Warrington is also fortunate in its proximity to both Manchester Airport – the busiest airport in the UK outside the London region – and Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Together these airports link the region to the rest of the world. In the UK, flight times to London from Manchester are just 55 minutes.
Warrington also provides businesses with convenient access to the Port of Liverpool and the Manchester Ship Canal, which handle more than 40 million tonnes of cargo and 15,000 ship movements a year.
