Industrial past with a green future
Warrington is a post-industrial town with a rich industrial heritage. This heritage perhaps brings some misconceptions of the modern and burgeoning town that is modern-day Warrington.
What was a hive of industry past is today a thriving, green and exciting place to live, work and visit. With attractive green spaces threading throughout the town, as well as areas of outstanding natural beauty such as Walton Hall and Gardens, Lymm Damm, Bridgewater Canal, the Trans Pennine Trail - not discounting easy access to the beautiful Cheshire countryside - Warrington is an incredible place to explore.
Quality of life
As well as a green heart, Warrington also offers a wealth of culture - with a varied and active events programme hosted by the Parr Hall and Pyramid Arts Centre and other venues.
Golden Gates Shopping centre and a revitalised town centre based around the newly opened Time Square make Warrington a desirable shopping destination. That's not forgetting Gemini Retail Park, home to significant shopping outlets, including one of the largest UK Marks & Spencers stores.
You'll never be short of a place to meet family and friends with a wealth of cafés, bars and pubs in the town centre, Stockton Heath, Lymm, Thelwall and other outlying areas. And if sport is your thing - welcome to one of the biggest rugby league towns in the North West. Host to the hugely successful Warrington Wolves, we'll also be playing our part in hosting the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.
Housing and education
If your staff are looking to relocate to Warrington, it'd be natural to check house prices.
We can confirm that a comprehensive range of affordable housing underpins the quality of life in Warrington. For example, Warrington's average house price is around £206,906 compared to the national average of £251,500.
With housing checked - what about education? Well, recent Ofsted inspections have found Warrington schools topping North-Western league tables. Of all primary schools inspected in the borough in 2020, 97% were rated good or outstanding. Secondary schools had 75% rated good or outstanding – way above the 67% average. The 2020 report also highlighted that 72% of Warrington schools reached the expected standards in key stage two – the third highest in the North West.
The beautiful North West
Living in Warrington gives you easy access to so much history, culture and green belt.
Make inroads into the beautiful North West and explore its cosmopolitan cities - Liverpool and Manchester. Don your walking boots and hike up Scarfell Pike or Striding Edge in the heart of the world-famous Lake District, or head into the wild countryside of the Peak District.
Don't forget Chester, North Wales and the beautiful Cheshire countryside - it's all right here - right on your doorstep.
