Quality of Life
Warrington has an environment in which businesses and people prosper. This is one of the reasons why relocating companies consistently choose the town.
The excellent quality of life is underpinned by a comprehensive range of affordable housing, to suit all tastes and requirements. The average price of a house in Warrington is significantly less than for Cheshire and England as a whole.
Education facilities in the area are also excellent. Recent Ofsted inspections have found many schools to be outstanding at both primary and secondary level, and pupil attainment is above the national average.
The town offers many facilities for shopping, nightlife, culture and leisure activities, with a varied and active events programme spearheaded by the Parr Hall and Pyramid Arts Centre. Golden Square Shopping Centre in the town centre is a magnet for shopaholics, and one of the largest Marks & Spencer stores in the UK is located at Gemini Retail Park. Warrington has many excellent hotels catering for both the leisure and business visitor.
The area has a wealth of fine parks, country parks and nature reserves which host many events throughout the year. These, together with other areas of public space such as the Bridgewater Canal, Lymm Dam and the miles of naturally beautiful countryside along the Trans Pennine Trail, make Warrington a wonderful area to explore.
Sports enthusiasts in Warrington are also particularly well catered for. From the top-flight rugby league side Warrington Wolves, championship standard golf courses and driving ranges, to many excellent health and fitness centres such as David Lloyd Leisure.
