Hotels in Widnes
Set on the north bank of the River Mersey, Widnes hotels are an excellent base for exploring the surrounding towns and cities of Warrington and Liverpool.
The town of Widnes has its roots in the Danish words for ‘wide' and ‘nose', referring to the prominent piece of land that juts out into the River Mersey. Widnes belongs to the Borough of Halton, which also includes the town of Runcorn and several civil parishes. Head across the river to Runcorn and you'll find a range of historical and cultural attractions. Norton Priory Museum & Gardens is a stunning priory that dates from the 12th century and features an informative museum alongside 38 acres of garden and woodland – a great place for family picnics and romantic strolls beside the priory buildings.
Another place to enjoy open green spaces is Wigg Island, covering 23 acres and home to a rich diversity of wildlife. The island is popular with bird spotters and there is a visitor's centre managed by Cheshire Wildlife Trust. If you're travelling with kids, the Catalyst Science Discovery Centre in Widnes is an exciting and accessible place to learn about science. The centre features three different hands-on galleries with over 100 different exhibitions, the 3D Alchemy Theatre and a rooftop observatory.
A short journey upstream along the River Mersey will take you to the town of Warrington. If you're looking to shop, Warrington's Golden Square contains a range of high street shops and smaller boutique brands, while Warrington Market has over 200 stalls selling everything from fresh local produce to antiques and souvenirs. Culture lovers will enjoy visiting Warrington Museum & Art Gallery, home to a plethora of different artefacts and paintings detailing the history of the local area. Gulliver's World is an ideal destination for family trips, boasting over 90 different rides to suit kids and adults of all ages, from rollercoasters for adrenaline junkies to gentler fairground rides for younger kids.
Downstream from Widnes is the city of Liverpool, one of the biggest cities in the north of England and home to a staggering variety of attractions and point of interest. Music lovers will want to make a pilgrimage to The Beatles Story and The Cavern Club, football fans will want to visit Anfield Stadium and culture vultures will have plenty to enjoy at the Walker Art Gallery and the Museum of Liverpool.
