Travelling around Prescot

First recorded 100 years after the Domesday Book, Prescot is a town that’s filled with history, things to do and plenty of places to see.

Sitting comfortably in the Metropolitan Borough of Knowsley in Merseyside, this is a town with everything to offer. The town is also close to much larger areas, with Liverpool only eight miles away.

Well served by rail and road, you’ll find Prescot and Eccleston Park railway stations here, alongside a number of bus routes. Arriva bus services operate in the area, providing easy access to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. This station provides connections to the City of Liverpool.

Whether it’s a full day out, a relaxing walk, eating out or a shopping expedition, Prescot provides ample opportunities for all of this and more.

Head over to Prescot Museum, which is filled with around 14,000 artefacts, where you can learn about the town’s industrial past, including its roles in watch and clock making. You can also visit the Grade I listed Church of St Mary, which dominates the skyline with its 18th-century spire.

Meanwhile, the town centre and Cables Retail Park provide a host of traditional retailers, alongside more local bespoke shops. Those looking to eat and drink will find many pubs, restaurants and cafes that will cater to all your wants and needs.

The town also hosts a number of events throughout the year, including the Elizabethan Faye and Prescot Festival of Music & The Arts during June. There are also Heritage Open Days in September, where you can look inside the Church’s Jacobean era building.
