The Runcorn Widnes Bridge
Norton Priory Museum and Gardens
Halton Water Tower
Runcorn, with its refurbished station and new extensive parking facilities, is an ideal departure point for those travelling south to Birmingham, London and beyond.
Just half a mile away from the railway station, and next to the Bridgwater Canal, is the award winning Brindley Theatre and Arts Centre. The theatre provides a first-class mix of shows, films and acts. It also provides exhibitions, classes and workshops.
The Runcorn Heritage Trail starts at The Brindley car park and takes in many of the important historical and industrial sites. The walk is 1 mile long and should take about 1 hour.
The first bridge to cross the Runcorn Gap was the railway bridge in 1868. The bridge included a walkway for pedestrians. In 1905 a transporter bridge was constructed and was one of only four built in Britain. When this became inadequate a steel-arched suspension bridge was built and on its completion in 1961, it was the largest steel arch in Europe.
Norton Priory Museum and Gardnes, which is less than 4 miles away, includes the historic Priory ruins, one of the largest monastic excavations in Britain and the St Christopher Gallery, housing the giant St Christopher statue, a wonder of medieval Europe.
In 2009, Runcorn Railway Station was named Best Staffed Station in the Cheshire Best Kept Station Competiton.
