Warrington combines the charm of traditional country villages and breathtaking countryside with modern business and hi-tech industry. The city's town centre is fast becoming a popular shopping destination, with a wide selection of toy shops to choose from. These range from quirky, niche shops that specialise in hard-to-find or obscure items, to more 'general' High Street stores like The Entertainer and Toys R Us that stock today's most popular and sought-after brands.
Unusually, Warrington has three excellent model shops. Aviation Direct are in Colwyn Close and specialise in military and civilian aircraft construction kits. Railway Junctions in Orford Lane offer a fantastic choice of model railway locos, coaches, rolling stock and buildings, as well as track and scenery to help build a realistic layout. Revolution Models in Bridge Lane are the experts at radio controlled kits of helicopters and fixed wing aircraft. They also carry an impressive selection of engines, batteries, fuel and many other accessories.
