For that day out with a difference try The World of Glass in St Helens.
This stylish contemporary visitor centre will open your eyes to the magic of glass, as well as blowing you away - literally - with its astonishing film show. You‚ll also be fascinated by the live glass-blowing exhibition in the Hot Glass Studio.
And there‚s so much more to see and do in this wonderful museum. You‚ll find superb heritage and history displays - including the dazzling Pilkington Glass Collection - along with three exhibition galleries housing constantly changing displays.
Here too you can admire magnificent two-tonne Venetian glass chandelier that once graced Manchester Airport‚s Terminal 1, and sample Victorian life as it was lived in St Helens.
You can also explore reminders of the town‚s glass heritage such as the listed Victorian glassmaking furnace and an astonishing labyrinth of tunnels that remained forgotten for years.
You'll find exciting glassware and other gifts in the Artisan Gift Shop while the relaxing Kaleidoscope Café is on hand for that much-needed break.

Directions: The World of Glass is situated just 5 minutes from Junction 7, M62.
