A short ferry trip or train ride across the water


The seaside town is a short journey from Liverpool city centre

Explore Liverpool City Region


There’s so much more to explore in Liverpool City Region. Liverpool is surrounded by neighbouring boroughs Wirral and Southport and they’re so easy to get to. 


Liverpool, Southport and Wirral have a combined coastline of 53 miles. Crosby beach is just a 15 minute train journey from Liverpool City Centre. New Brighton Beach in Wirral and Formby Beach in Sefton are easily reached on the Merseyrail. 


But it isn't just coastline on offer outside Liverpool City Centre. Future Yard in Wirral is one of the most exciting new music venues in the UK, giving a platform to local emerging musicians as well as new national and international artists. Eureka Science and Discovery opened in 2022, allowing those aged 0 - 14 to discover how science, tech, engineering and maths influence and shape their lives. 


In Southport visitors will find miles of coastline and seaside attractions to explore.
