Hoylake Tourist Information & Visitor Guide
Located in the north west of the Wirral Peninsula, the seaside town of Hoylake is a lovely place to spend a few hours, a day or even a couple of nights. Situated between the towns of Meols and West Kirby, its coastal location lends itself perfectly to walking and cycling along the stunning Wirral coastline.
If you’re visiting on a sunny day, then head down to Hoylake beach which is as beautiful as it is spacious, a haven for families, dog walkers and those chasing the famous Wirral sunsets. The promenade also plays host to one of the town’s most popular annual events, the Hoylake RNLI Open Day which takes place each year in August. There is always loads to see and do on ‘Lifeboat Day’!
When talking about Hoylake and major events, you cannot help but mention the Royal Liverpool Golf Club which is at the heart of the town. The historic and world-renowned course is known for being one of the toughest links courses in the world, and the Wirral has hosted the British Open Championship on several occasions at the Royal Liverpool Golf Club.
Whatever time of the year you visit Hoylake, the town has much to offer. It boasts an eclectic range of restaurants and bars, not to mention some of Wirral’s best coffee shops and tea rooms. It’s perfect for foodies, whether you want a bit of pub grub or something altogether more sophisticated.
There are some lovely independent shops to explore, selling everything from ornate gifts and home furnishings to memorabilia and antiques, while Hoylake is also fast becoming known for being a hub for arts on the Wirral. Hoylake is certainly not main-stream Britain, and is a relaxing and refreshing place to spend some down-time.
Finally, for walkers and cyclists, Hoylake can also be the perfect base from which you can explore the rest of the Wirral. Whether you want to use the road and rail links to visit somewhere else on the peninsula, or if you want to head straight in to a ride of walk, then Hoylake is a great place to start. You can follow the coast all the way around to Seacombe, taking in New Brighton along the way and experiencing the sweeping views out to the Irish Sea.
