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, though the factory is now operated by Bentley Motors. The local football team is Crewe Alexandra F.C., the only team in the country with this unusual suffix.

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


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