Advantages: Good shopping
Disadvantages: Crime, expensive, awful nightlife.
I very recently moved to Warrington from Lancaster (a huge culture shock!!), but I used to live not far from here in Widnes, and I;m sorry Warrington lovers, but I'm not a fan. Yes the shopping is great, with the new Golden Square shopping centre, but other than that I don't think theres much else I can say which is good.
warrington is full of what we call "chavs", theres alot of crime, and you can't go out into town unless its a saturday unless you want to be sat in an empty club.
We moved into a little flat in the centre of town, its next to a railway line so we cant open windows, our bins are privately emptied and our road/carpark is also private...yet our council tax is £107 a month...and I can't see where our money goes.
I love clubbing and night life, and after living in a colourful city like Lancaster where every night is party nihgt I was VERY disappointed when I went out on what was supposedly student night to find a handful of people out. (Literally around 10), the drinks are expensive, the people who are out with you are...well....
The streets are dirty, the roads are a disgrace, and having a social life here is near enough impossible.
They have a rubbish rubgy team...though thats a personal thing as a Widnes Vikings fan I've been brought up to hate Wire!! :-P
but even not taking that into consideration, I'm not a warrington fan. I only moved here to live with my now husband, as he had a full time job here and couldnt get one where I lived. And I have hated it ever since. i am looking forward to moving back to my own town!!
I don't mean to offend anyone who lives here and loves it, but its just not for me!!!
Summary: Can't wait to get away!
