Crewe is a medium-sized town in South Cheshire. It boasts friendly people, inexpensive hotels and eateries. It is famed for its railway connections and also as the home of Rolls Royce. The local football team is Crewe Alexandra F.C, the only team in the country with this unusual suffix.

Get in[edit]

By train[edit]

The main West Coast railway line (London Euston to Glasgow) runs through the famous Crewe station. The town itself was built around this important junction when the railway arrived in the 1830s. Today, around 10,000 people per day pass through Crewe railway station. It can be seen as the 'Gateway to the North West', with very frequent links to the tourist centre of Manchester, Chester, and Liverpool. Almost anywhere on the British rail network can be reached from here.

By bus[edit]

The M6 motorway is close by. Use junction 16 or 17 to get to Crewe.

Get around[edit]

  • The Railway Age museum. Open only on weekends from Feb-Oct. It is a very interesting and fitting museum for Crewe. It features many locomotives including many steam trains and the ill-fated British Rail Advanced Passenger Train of the 1980s.

The museum isn't as rigid as many railway museums and you are free to wander around the yards and locomotives at your leisure.  edit
