Wirral is often meant to describe the Wirral Peninsula, a collection of towns and villages within an area that contains everything from urban towns and intriguing architecture to sleepy rural villages and sandy beaches. With 25 miles of dramatic coastline and many acres of unspoilt landscape, Wirral offers plenty of time for relaxation whilst also providing modern amenities and entertainment, as well as easy access to Birkenhead and Liverpool. It's the best of both worlds.
With several outstanding golf courses, spas, wildlife reserves and some outstanding Michelin-starred restaurants, the Wirral Peninsula offers something for everyone. Walkers, hikers and mountain bikers will find a network of paths and bridle tracks to explore, making it an ideal location for outdoor pursuits.
Away from the countryside, the more urban areas of Wirral provide terrific opportunities for shopping and entertainment including a wide selection of pubs, clubs and bars.
Much like in neighbouring Liverpool, Wirral has strong sporting traditions. The Open Golf Championship has been held here on several occasions, and the area is home to Tranmere Rovers Football Club as well as several rugby clubs. Wirral's incredible coastline also lends itself well to a range of watersports, from sailing to windsurfing and kayaking.
Wirral has featured often in literature over the years, and once you see its outstanding scenery and excellent amenities for yourself, you'll understand why.
