The magnificent Cultural Quarter is centred on the Palmyra Square conservation area. It incorporates the Museum, Parr Hall and Pyramid Arts Centre as well as some of Warrington’s best preserved 19th century buildings.
Opposite the Cultural Quarter, is Warrington’s iconic Town Hall building. Designed by James Gibbs for Thomas Parr and previously known as ‘Bank Hall’, the building became Warrington’s Town Hall in 1872. The recently restored Grade II Listed Golden Gates date from before 1895 and are a significant part of the Town Hall Conservation Area.
