Other services include trains to Manchester Victoria and Chester, and to Llandudno and Holyhead on the North Wales Coast Line. The centre of Newton-le-Willows is actually closer to the nearby Earlestown station, which is located at the bottom of Market Street in the west of town. Newton-le-Willows station serves the residential neighbourhoods in the eastern part of town, where some shops, pubs and other services can be found on the High Street, about five minutes' walk to the north. Newton-le-Willows station is also the closest train connection for Haydock Park racecourse, and there is a shuttle bus service linking the two on race weekends.
