Transport

As well as boasting a good selection of high-quality schools, another significant plus-point of St Helens is its superb local transport infrastructure and its handy location at the centre of the region's motorway network.

Set just off the A580 East Lancashire Road, its close proximity to multiple motorways means that almost every city in the North West is within a realistic commutable distance, making it the perfect spot for those looking to work in the region.

St Helens also benefits from an efficient bus network with regular services from across the region passing through the main bus station on Bickerstaffe Street, nearby to the Hardshaw Shopping Centre and a short distance from St Helens Central railway station.

From St Helens Central railway station there are direct rail links with the surrounding areas of Eccleston, Thatto Heath and Lea Green, in addition to direct trains to and from Liverpool, Wigan and Manchester.

Shopping and Eating

In relation to shopping, St Helens offers everything you could possibly need, happily delivered through a mix of popular branded stores and independent shops.

At the heart of St Helen’s shopping offering is Church Square, the town’s largest indoor shopping centre, with plenty of free parking and a good selection of popular high street stores among the many shops.

Found just off the Linkway on the outskirts of St Helens, Ravenhead Retail Park offers a number of large retail brands conveniently situated in one location and St Helens Retail Park, just 5 minutes away, offers the same but is also home to a number of independent stores and discount outlets.

St Helens is also well served when it comes to supermarkets, with all the major supermarkets electing to have stores in and around the town.

When it comes to eating out, St Helens town centre has many restaurants appealing to all budgets and tastes, from coffee shops and café bars to international and traditional British cuisine. Or if you are simply looking for a place to enjoy a few drinks, St Helens boasts a great selection of traditional pubs, modern bars, and nightclubs in and around the town centre, with the biggest concentration of eating and drinking establishments on Bridge Street, Westfield Street and Duke Street.

Leisure and Culture

Situated on top of Sutton Manor overlooking the M62, the biggest St Helens attraction in every sense is ‘Dream’ - a multi-award-winning, 20-metre high sculpture designed by the world-renowned artist, Jaume Plensa.

Other popular attractions are the fascinating North West Museum of Road Transport with its extensive collection of vintage road vehicles and the multi-award winning attraction The World of Glass. With artefacts dating back to Ancient Egypt from 3000 years BC, The World of Glass looks at the role glass has played in people’s lives throughout history.

Those looking for a more cultural experience can enjoy a visit to the Citadel Arts Centre, voted by the Independent as one of the top 10 jazz and blues venues in the UK or can take in a performance at the acclaimed Theatre Royal.

St Helens also offers a wealth of opportunities for lovers of sport, especially fans of rugby league. Home to the ‘Saints’, the most successful Super League team in history, a visit to the Totally Wicked Stadium to watch their beloved St. Helens R.F.C is a big part of life for many locals.

For fans of rugby union, the town also hosts Liverpool St Helens Rugby Union Football Club at their ground in Moss Lane and for those that prefer the round ball game, then all of Liverpool and Manchester’s football grounds are within 40 minutes' travelling time from the town centre.

The town centre also boasts a multiplex cinema and a 10-pin bowling complex.

Nature and the Great Outdoors

The excellent transport infrastructure and St Helens’ prime location at the centre of the region's motorway network, allows easy access to many of the North West’s most popular beauty spots, with the Lake District just over an hour away, the Wirral coast accessible in under 50 minutes and places like Formby, just over 30 minutes away.

Just down the road, Knowsley Safari Park offers the perfect day out for the family, and if you want local countryside, then St Helens offers Sankey Valley Country Park, Billinge Hill and Carr Mill Dam on the outskirts of town.

Venturing further afield, the splendour of Knowsley Hall offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy its 2500 acres of stunning scenic parklands and is also the venue for a number of open-air theatre performances, including an upcoming performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’ in August 2021.
