Why take the train to Widnes?
The sights start the second you step off your train to Widnes as the railway station itself is a listed building.
It's just a short walk from the station into the town centre, where the large Widnes Market Hall offers plenty of brilliant bargains and you'll find all your high street favourites in the Green Oaks Shopping Centre.
Those in search of a pleasant stroll should try Victoria Park, with its boating lake and butterfly house, or Spike Island, where you'll also find Catalyst, the only science museum in the UK devoted to chemistry.
