Travelling around Huyton
Known locally as ‘the village’ or ‘the villie’, this once rural community is now a vibrant metropolitan town. Historically part of Lancashire, the town has close associations with neighbouring Roby.
Take a stroll through this wonderful place. Here, you’ll experience everything from beautiful scenes and historical sites to modern-day shopping and art. You’ll also discover a connection between the area and a legendary musical quartet.
Huyton has excellent transport links, with the bus and railway station close to each other. Arriva provides bus services to places far and wide. The city of Liverpool is easily reachable, while St Helens and Warrington can also be accessed. Those looking to go on holiday will find buses directly to John Lennon Airport too.
There’s no doubt about it, if you love to shop, you’ll be spoilt for choice here. You’ll find Huyton Shopping Village close to the bus station, alongside a host of independent retailers dotted around the area.
For lovers of the great outdoors, you’ll be well-served, with eight surrounding public parks that are perfect for those long walks and a spot of fresh air. If you have kids there’s no need to worry, with nine playgrounds in and around the area.
Meanwhile, the old meets the new when it comes to culture. Spend time looking at the contemporary art gallery within Huyton Library. Then visit the town’s focal point, Huyton Parish Church, which has stood for approximately 900 years.
The churchyard is also the final resting place of the original Beatles bassist Stuart Sutcliffe. In fact, the town played host to The Beatles many times before they hit it big, when they were known as The Quarrymen. There are even local tours for those who want to know more.
