Trains to Warrington Bank Quay travel on the West Coast Mainline, with regular services to London, Birmingham and Scotland, as well as regional trains to Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales. The station opened in 1868, and some 19th century buildings remain in evidence, although the station is dwarfed by the neighbouring Unilever manufacturing plant, a local landmark that stands as a reminder of Warrington's industrial history.
Warrington Bank Quay is to the southwest of the town centre, close to the Cultural Quarter, where you will find the Pyramid arts centre, the Parr Hall concert venue and the Warrington Museum and Art Gallery. North of the Cultural Quarter, the town is dominated by the Golden Square shopping centre, which has a good mix of big-name shops and food outlets. Local Rugby League heroes the Warrington Wolves play at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, about a 20-minute walk from the station.
