Birkenhead Park

Birkenhead Park

It is thought that his design was the model for many parks around the world, including Central Park, New York.


Placed between Liverpool and North Wales, overlooking the River Dee, Welsh hills and River Mersey, the beautiful Wirral Peninsula is fantastic for walks, outdoor activities, countryside hotels and cosy pubs.

Travelling to Wirral is easy with fast train and bus connections - or take the Mersey Ferry, which stops off at Woodside and Seacombe ferry terminals.

Wirral's 25 miles of dramatic coastline provides a fantastic backdrop to a great day out. Whether you’re looking for high-adrenaline watersports or a walk along the coast to spot the rare wildlife, Wirral has it all. Try heading out to Hilbre Island from West Kirby to explore the islands and see seals, but watch the tide times! Or walk or cycle the Wirral Way, stopping at Thurstaston Country Park or Parkgate for a drink or ice-cream. Wirral Circular Trail is perfect if you want to enjoy the beautiful scenery and fresh air.

Wirral is home to some of the finest restaurants and food producers in the North West. Savour gourmet treats at the Michelin-starred Fraiche restaurant, visit a gastropub for a relaxed meal, or head to one of the farm shops or farmers’ markets to meet Wirral food heroes and taste local produce.

Explore the historic Port Sunlight Village, built by Lord Lever for his factory workers. You can learn more about the village’s history at the fascinating Port Sunlight Museum. Also in Port Sunlight, the Lady Lever Art Gallery hosts a personal collection of fine and decorative art treasures.

Birkenhead Priory is the oldest standing building on Merseyside, encapsulating so much of the town's history within a small, enclosed site. For a more recent piece of history, visit the Wirral Tramway & Transport Museum - a celebration of Birkenhead's place in the history of public transport.

The rejuvenated New Brighton seaside resort has been restored to its former glory, with watersports on the Marine Lake, beach walks and attractions like the Light Cinema, Floral Pavilion Theatre and Championship Adventure Golf. Hoylake and West Kirby are also great coastal towns to visit in Wirral.
