Daresbury Introduction

Daresbury is a quaint Cheshire village, complete with a handsome 19th-century church, a cosy traditional pub and dainty tearooms. Its greatest claim to fame is as the birthplace of legendary children's author Lewis Carroll, but in recent years it's become an unlikely occasional gathering spot for hedonists from all over the globe, having become the regular home of the annual Creamfields dance music festival. Daresbury is located around 5 miles south-west of Warrington, a bustling town with a thriving commercial centre.

If you don't find what you're looking for here, try expanding your search to Chester, which is around 30 minutes by car from Daresbury.

Things to see

Housed in Daresbury's All Saints Church, the Lewis Carroll Centre tells the story of the village's most famous former resident, through a series of colourful exhibits. True fans of the writer can pay their respects at the nearby Lewis Carroll Birthplace. Sadly, the parsonage in which he was born was destroyed in a fire, but the remains are cared for by the National Trust, and continue to draw literature lovers from far and wide. For a fun-packed family day out, make a beeline for Chester Zoo. It's one of the UK's biggest and best-loved wildlife attractions, and home to 1000s of animals from every corner of the planet, from impossibly cute two-toed sloths to graceful giraffes.
