The pretty town of Crewe in the heart of Cheshire, has much to offer visitors to the region.

For train enthusiasts, both big and small, at the Crewe Heritage Centre, you can indulge your passion by driving the locomotive around the tracks, trying the signal box or controlling the junction. Explore the infamous tilting train - the 1979 Advanced Passenger Train (APT), the restored Manchester trams, and the Intercity HST. With trains visiting the Centre, there’s always some new adventure to be had.
Crewe’s Market Hall offers a bustling vibrant retail experience. Stalls feature local crafts, artisan produce, and other treasures, and this is a great place to seek out an unusual gift or treat for yourself. How about a beautiful piece of handmade silver jewellery, studio ceramics, or, if you have a sweet tooth, indulge in some delicious fudge?
If you feel the need for a spot of culture, head for the splendid black and white Little Moreton Hall. Owned by the National Trust, this iconic 16th century building is home to a collection of original Tudor furniture, brought to life by costumed guides, demonstrating life in medieval England. During Tudor times, people had a real fear of witches and black magic, and with plague rife in many parts of the country, civil war looking likely and the church in turmoil, society sought to protect itself. Little Moreton Hall has over 250 ‘witch marks’ scratched into the walls and woodwork around windows and doors. These were created to ward off evil witches, protecting the entry points of the Hall.
The award-winning Lyceum Theatre is a great place to end your visit. With a packed programme of events, this glorious Edwardian auditorium regularly sees popular performances including stand-up comedy, classic plays, jazz and more. Enjoy fine dining at the in-house restaurant to complete your experience.
