Daresbury was the birthplace of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland author Lewis Carroll. It is the site of the Science and Technology Facilities Council's Daresbury Laboratory, the Synchrotron Radiation Source.
In 2006, the annual Creamfields dance festival was held in Daresbury after relocating from the disused Liverpool airport site it had occupied for the six previous years. This saw 40,000 revellers partying from 3pm-6am to a line-up that included live performances from The Prodigy and Zutons, as well as DJ sets from the likes of Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, 2 Many DJ's, Green Velvet and DJ Shadow. As of 2014, the festival has been an annual event at the site.
