The town is also home to one of the oldest lending libraries in the country and the award winning Warrington Museum and Art Gallery features regularly changing exhibitions. 

The Pyramid and the Parr Hall venues host an array of music concerts and family friendly shows for all tastes and ages. 

Sports fans may enjoy a trip to the Halliwell Jones rugby stadium to see local Super League side Warrington Wolves in action!

Picturesque villages and outdoor fun

Warrington has plenty to offer nature lovers and those who enjoy the exploring in the great outdoors.  The borough of has a plethora of parks, green spaces, historical estates and sites of scientific interest, not to mention an interesting network of canals. 

Highlights include Walton Hall and Gardens (home to a lovely children's zoo), Rixton Claypits, Risley Moss, Woolston Eyes and Appleton Dingle.

For young families a trip to local theme park Gulliver's World is likely to be right up your street.


A large number of events, fetes and festivals also happen around the borough throughout the year, these include farmers and themed markets, Warrington Walking Day, classic car shows and a welly wanging competition!  Take a look at the What's Onsection.

Activities for young people

The council’s youth work service offers lots of activities and one-to-one work to support your personal and social development if you're aged 11-19. 

All projects are based on listening to you and working with you to make sure you get the best out of all activities.  You can get involved in sessions based on music, art, dance and sports, and also discussions in group situations.  We can also offer one-to-one support to help you overcome any specific difficulties by working with a dedicated youth worker to set targets and achieve goals. 

All of our youth work support and activities aim to help you to build self-esteem and confidence, tackle any substance misuse issues, access sexual health advice, and overcome any social, emotional and behavioural difficulties you might be experiencing.
