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.
Huyton may not look like it, but it’s filled with history, and not just the early years of The Beatles. Founded in 600 – 650AD, the current spelling of the town has been in use since around 1300. Once a mining town, the area was home to many Welsh workers in the 19th century, which led to the town erecting a Welsh-speaking non-conformist chapel. Later, a prisoner-of-war camp was located at the King George V playing field during the Second World War.
