Best known for its industrial heritage, Crewe remains a town still with its main employers in the manufacturing and technology industries, namely Bentley Motors. The town is centrally located in Cheshire and is served with a busy rail junction serving the entire north-west and north Wales.
Crewe Alexander is the towns football team who play at the Gresty Road ground. The town is also blessed with the Crewe Heritage Centre, a museum dedicated to the railway with trains from yester-year and more recently on display. Then there is the Crewe War Memorial - a poignant reminder of the sacrifices of so many of the towns people and those of the surrounding area.
Evenings in the town can be spent in many lively pubs, bars and restaurants, and for the more cultured, there is the Crewe Lyceum Theatre, bringing past and modern productions year round.
