  • The best thing about Warrington is SOUTH warrington. Its funny driving home after being away, to watch the scallies of town race beside me untill you eventually escape it all and drive alongside the purring porsches, mercedes and recentally ferraris that grace our streets in Stockton Heath and Appleton ;-) Although most people cant comment as they are originally from the inner warrington slums..... foregtting youre roots ;-) ?? By the way, you are all asking where all the scousers and scallies came from, it was the overspill from Liverpool that produced them all and as that happened north Warrington plummetted and South warrington sky rocketed on wealth. Basics - you live in south warrington if you shop in wilmslow and the rest of cheshire and North Warrington if your into cider on street corners ! oh dear !
  • good nightlife, friendly people always good night out.
  • St Elphins scouts (13th Warrington), Howley, Woolston
  • Friendly people, lots to see and do, getting bigger and more popular by the day...
  • beer, and all the local riders.
  • THE WARRINGTON WOLVES ( the wire )
  • easy women
  • Appleton and Stockton Heath
  • Some (not many and most are taken!!) Cute lads!!!
  • Bars can be good on certain nights when the fools are away. Good bus service if you're into that kinda thing (it is!). Come on, it isnt that bad really! I quite like it...put it this way, compare it Runcorn!...............Widness, Wigan, St Helens, Kosovo. Plus, there's a nice selection of BMW M5's, TVR Chimera's,Accord Type R's,Vectra GSi's, Porsche's, Impreza's, Lancers etc etc doing the rounds.
  • In between two major cities and surrounded by Motorways! No wonder we've all got breathing difficulties
  • The Blue Bell - best night out in town
  • sexy blokes, mentioning no names (Stan the Man)- Give it to me baby!!!!!!
  • The M6 outa here
  • You can go back to Warrington after spending years away, walk down the high street in the town centre and you still know everybody and say hi
  • All of my friends the skaters and jessica.
  • There is a Weatherspoons pub being built! AT LAST
  • Thats a hard one, there is a good atmosphere in the town centre at the weekends, most of the time, but thats about it.oh yes lots of idiots to laugh at in the pubs and clubs.
  • Unemployment is 3%. Lots of green space eg Sankey Valley Park. Good takeaways
  • the slapper there is no where else in the world with easier girls
  • The best thing about Warrington is the roads out. Also my mum still living there I can go back and have a laugh at all the locals. They are all stuck in a time warp .Although the council estates have all had new windows. You know the saying you can change the buildings but not the people who live in them.
