Living and working in St Helens
Out and about in St Helens
In our multi-award-winning cultural quarter we have the perfect location for our Theatre Royal entertainment venue, with theatre, dance, music and film events on the agenda.
If you want art, then the Godfrey Pilkington Art Gallery and the World of Glass museum are the places for you, giving you a flavour of the town's industrial heritage and history. So does the North West Museum of Road Transport, with the largest collection of old buses in the country - especially if you have kids.
At the heart of the town's shopping offering is Church Square, St Helens' largest indoor shopping centre, with popular high street stores among the many shops. Outside of town is Ravenhead Retail Park on the linkway, where you will find some of the larger retailers, conveniently situated in one place. St Helens Retail Park offers the same but it also houses a number of independent and discount stores.
When it comes to eating out, St Helens town centre has many restaurants appealing to all tastes and budgets, from café bars and coffee shops to international and traditional British cuisine. Or if you are simply looking for a place to enjoy a few drinks, we have the traditional pubs (with many serving real ale), modern bars and clubs in and around the town centre, with the biggest concentration of eating and drinking establishments on Bridge Street, Westfield Street and Duke Street.
The town centre also boasts a multiplex cinema and 10-pin bowling alley.
