St Helens, Merseyside

Merseyside is a densely populated coastal county, lots of people, spirit, humour, lots to see - from land and air.

St Helens is on the edge of the main Merseyside conurbation, close to Knowsley and Huyton, and just a few miles west of Haydock (Haydock Park Racecourse), and Ashton-in-Makerfield (Lancashire). Access to St. Helens by road is along the A570 (from Ormskirk and Skelmersdale to the north), or the M62 (J,7) to the south. Alternatively, St. Helens can be reached from the A58 from Huyton (to the west) or Ashton-in-Makerfield (to the east).

St. Helens is most well-known for one of the most successful companies in this area: St. Helens' Glass which as recently ceased trading. See also St Helens Windows and The World of Glass, a visitor centre in the heart of St Helens.

St. Helens is also right on the edge of Knowsley Safari Parks so apart from enjoying a hot air balloon flight, you could also visit the animals.
