Knutsford is a town in Cheshire.

Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

Knutsford is in close proximity to Manchester Airport, only fifteen minutes by car. It will cost about £20-£25 in a taxi.

By train[edit]

Knutsford is situated on the Manchester to Chester railway line. Trains in either direction run every hour, with extras at peak times. On Sundays trains are less frequent but direct trains are available to Salford, Wigan, Bolton and Southport.

By Coach[edit]

GorillaBus [1] operates services from Knutsford to Liverpool, Liverpool South Parkway, Stoke-on-Trent and East Midlands Airport from Knutsford bus station.

By road[edit]

Knutsford is situated very close to J19 on the M6. From Manchester head south towards the M56 and leave at Junction 7.

Get around[edit]

The best way to get around in Knutsford is on foot, however there is a Knutsford circular bus that links the district of Longridge with the centre of the town. It can be caught at the bus station by Booth's Supermarket.

  • Pizza Express
  • Via Via deli (on Regent Street)
  • Loch Fyne (Sea Food)
  • Mughli (Indian)
  • The Belle Epoque (Various)- probably best of Knutsford's restaurants but this is reflected in the price (probably not worth the money)

Traditional English pubs, serving many Ales and they have a very friendly atmosphere, especially the Cross Keys:

  • Cross Keys
  • Lord Eldon
  • White Bear
  • The Builder's Arms is the best place to watch football matches.
  • Later in the evening Moda and Amber Lounge offer good alternatives for a more classy place to have a drink.

There are a couple of reasonable tea shops. Try Mallard on Princess Street and the Penny Farthing in a pleasant courtyard off King Street.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

  • Cottons Hotel Includes leisure facilities and is a great place to stay just outside town.

The Cross Keys Hotel, Belle Epoque and the Angel hotel all provide accommodation in more central areas.
