The purpose built, state-of-the-art facility features a combination of traditional features and contemporary charm, welcoming an estimated 25,000 visitors per week. The two-storey building is bordered by Bridge Street on one side and the new Time Square public space on the other.

Cookhouse at Warrington Market

One of Warrington Market’s major features is a large food court - ‘Cookhouse at Warrington Market’ can be separated from the main market hall, to serve customers into the evening and to host special events.
