Halton’s Hidden Heritage

Halton Borough Council has launched a survey to find out what people know about cultural and leisure in the Borough. This will help us in planning ahead. The survey asks questions about what you know about visitor attractions in Widnes and Runcorn, where you choose to spend your leisure time and how far you would travel. The survey takes about 5 minutes to complete.

The survey can be completed online at www.halton.gov.uk/visitor.
