Things To Do in Crewe
A great day out awaits
Already explored our lovely Crewe Hall Hotel & Spa and it’s grounds? Why not head out into Crewe? Here’s a few of some of the most interesting things to do in the town.
St Mary’s Church
15 minute drive
Marvel at the architecture of this medieval church.
St Mary’s Church is considered one of the finest medieval church's in England, and is as visiually stunning as some cathedrals, such as Lincoln or Cheshire. Most visitors go to see the ornately carved ‘misericords’ – little perches' members of the clergy used in Medieval England when they couldn’t sit down.
Little Moreton Hall
20 minute drive
Find out what it was like to live as a Tudor.
Head up to the Long Gallery and see for yourself how wonky the house is. Discover hidden paintings and etchings in the old wood used to ward off evil spirits. You can also check out the Elizabethan-style knot garden which, despite being planted in 1972, contains many herbs and other plants that would’ve been present in the 17th century garden.
Crewe Lyceum Theatre
10 minute drive
With everything from tribute acts to comedians to local performances, a night at the Crewe Lyceum will be one you won’t forget.
Originally a Romam Catholic Church, Crewe Lyceum has an illustrious history. Both Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel have performed there, as well as ‘Syncopating Sandy’, a marathon piano player who played at Crewe Lyceum for 134 hours straight in 1958.
Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker
20 minute drive
Dive into the history of British war defence systems.
Declassified in 1993 and opening in 1998, the Hack Green Nuclear Bunker is open to the public as war museum, focusing on the Cold War. Rodney Siebert, the curator of the museum, was determined to show the public exactly how the country was being defended during WWII and the Cold War.
