The town of Warrington has two stations, with this one being opened in 1873, and today, seeing nearly 2 million passengers using its 2 platforms. Unusually for contemporary stations, only non-electrified rails pass through Warrington Central, and only diesel trains can travel along this route.

The station buildings still feature their original designs of coloured brickwork, however, most are in private ownership, and the ticket office has been relocated to a more accessible contemporary building.
