Crewe

UK travel information

A railway town within the county of Cheshire, Crewe enjoys a rich history in railway affairs. Perhaps the best-known feature in Crewe is the large railway junction and home to Crewe Works.

For many years a major railway engineering facility, Crewe Works is now much reduced in size, but is still interesting to see. From 1946 until 2002 it was also the home of Rolls-Royce motor car production and the Pyms Lane factory on the west of the town now produces Bentley motor cars exclusively, making Crewe an ideal location for motoring enthusiasts, as well as railway enthusiasts.

The town features a large park, Queen’s Park, which is situated on land donated by the London and North Western Railway, and is a great place to enjoy a beautiful, peaceful walk. Also nearby is the Palms Tropical Oasis, a huge glass house in which tropical birds, fish and wildlife are housed amongst exotic flowering plants and beautiful waters.
