Visit the home of British glass at the World of Glass museum in St Helens, a fascinating town also known for its rugby league heritage. See wild animals up close and personal at Knowsley Safari Park, take in Anthony Gormley’s unique art installation on Crosby Beach and visit Formby Point to see one of England’s last strongholds for red squirrels – go see before they disappear for good." Visit England
