Explore Wirral Peninsula (Merseyside) Coast and Beaches

Wirral is a peninsula roughly 24 km (15 miles) long and 11 km (7 miles) wide and is bounded to the west by the River Dee, forming a boundary with Wales, to the east by the River Mersey, and to the north by the Irish Sea. The Wirral Peninsula provides a good holiday base and is also popular with day trippers from Liverpool. Most of the coast is accessible with the main seafronts at New Brighton and West Kirby. The peninsula also has a lot of open space with multiple parks and woodland. Wirral is also the ideal out of town base for exploring the neighbouring cities of Chester and Liverpool.
