A new visitor guide and map has been launched as part of a project called Destination Crewe, which aims to promote the town as a meetings destination.

The guide will enable visitors to make the most of their stay, highlighting places of interest, hotels, business parks, shopping centres and the university.  

Paul Colman, chief executive of South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said: “Crewe has such great rail and road connections it is the obvious place for businesses to hold meetings and conferences. If we can promote Crewe and the surrounding area as a meetings venue, it will help local businesses and create jobs for local people. We realised that there was nothing to tell visitors about what the area has to offer so as a first step we have worked together with partners to develop this map and guide.”

Simon Yates, Leader of Crewe Town Council, said: “We are on the threshold of so many good things coming to Crewe, with town centre redevelopment and HS2 just on the horizon. Even as we wait for these to happen, we have a lot to be proud of including excellent events such as Chalk it up and trAction, our significant place in the history of the railways, and high quality entertainments at the Lyceum Theatre. This guide puts Crewe well and truly on the map.”
