Newton-le-Willows is one of Merseyside’s really popular residential towns. It’s got excellent transport links between its two closest big cities, Liverpool, and Manchester, and the M6 puts the North West, the Midlands, and the South West within easy reach. It’s easy to get out and about, and it’s lovely to come home to, with a busy high street, lots of independent shops, restaurants, and pubs – a winning combination for your new home.
This is a market town with great connections. The M6 passes just east of the town, and the M62 into the heart of Liverpool is just a few miles south. The A580 also heads into Liverpool via St Helens, and east to join the M60, the motorway ‘ring road’ that encircles Manchester. It’s just as easy to get to the Wirral and North Wales, as it is to travel into Lancashire. The town’s train station is another asset, with services from Northern Rail, TransPennine Express and Transport for Wales. You can get to Liverpool Lime Street in 30 minutes, and to Manchester Airport in under an hour. It’s only about half an hour by car as you don’t have to go via Manchester Piccadilly.
As well as having great shops in the town centre, supermarkets, and retail parks nearby, Newton-le-Willows has got excellent leisure amenities. The Haydock Park Golf Club, the Lyme and Wood Country Park and the Newton Willows Sports Club will keep you all active. For the latest blockbusters, you can go to Cineworld St Helens and ODEON Luxe in Warrington. For a different film experience, try out the open-air Film & Chill at the Haydock Racecourse. Newton-le-Willows is a family-friendly town with plenty going on.
The two cities
Liverpool and Manchester pack a mighty cultural, entertainment and retail therapy punch between them. Add the excitement of the game, with home matches to show off their great football teams. Newton-le-Willows couldn’t be in a better position for enjoying the best of both these energetic cities.
