  • Crosby beach is approximately 3 miles of beach and sand dunes and also includes Blundellsands. Sitting between Liverpool and Southport this beach is not good for swimming with strong tides and mud. The beach has a big tidal reach and for safety reasons, it is advised that visitors to the beach stay within 50m of the promenade where you have sand and not mud. Parts of the beach are backed by grass areas providing an escape from the sand.

    Although not a swimming beach it is very popular as the ‘Another Place’ (100 iron men) sculptures by Antony Gormley are found on this beach. The cast iron figures which face out to sea, spread over a 2 mile (3.2 km) stretch of the beach between Waterloo and Blundellsands. Each figure is 189 cm tall and weighs around 650 kg. In common with most of Gormley’s work, the figures are cast replicas of the artist’s own body. As the tides ebb and flow, the figures are revealed and submerged by the sea.

    Horses are allowed on the beach but excluded from all bathing areas, marked by two signed flagpoles, one each side of the area with either red or red and yellow flags flying.

    Facilities include toilets, promenade, lifeguards and Crosby beach has a choice of Free parking at Cambridge Road, Mariners Road and Hall Road car parks. The beach can be reached by foot from Hall Road railway station, Waterloo Train Station or Blundellsands and Crosby Train Station.

    Crosby Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs allowed but MUST be kept under close control at all times.

    Horse riders MUST posses current and valid personal and third party liability insurance.
