Travelling around Wythenshawe

Travelling around Wythenshawe

An area with a history that began in the 9th century, it’s believed that Widnes came about following the Viking invasion of Britain. Sitting at the extreme south of the Danelaw, the origin of the town’s name comes from the Danish word ‘vid’ and ‘noese’, which means wide nose. It’s thought that this refers to the promontory projecting into the River Mersey, where the town sits on the northern bank.

Operating a number of transport links, Widnes is well-served via both rail and road. Arriva buses provide a number of services to Liverpool, Warrington, St Helens and other nearby towns.
