When people think Crewe, many think of railways

Did you know it was one of the leading locations in the 19th century for railway innovation, engineering and design? Today, Crewe’s about more than just trains - although it remains one of the biggest railway hubs in the UK. You’ll also find a thriving live music scene, shops, bars, pubs and restaurants with a variety of cuisines.


Must see:

  • The Market Hall offers a distinctive setting for a range of food, goods and entertainment. 
  • Crewe Heritage Centre brings history to life, allowing you to discover the story of how Crewe became the railway capital of the world.
  • The 44-acre, Grade II-listed Queens Park is the perfect escape for an afternoon stroll or picnic in the park. 
  • Enjoy one of the many shows performed at the award-winning Edwardian Lyceum Theatre.

Crewe is also home to the Crewe Makers Market, held in the town on the third Sunday of every month. It features over 60 stalls showcasing award-winning local food and drink and arts and crafts, including products from vintage artisans.
