In the north-eastern corner of Wirral sits the town of Wallasey, one of the biggest towns on the entire peninsula and one that is located at the mouth of the River Mersey.
Wallasey has a long and fascinating history, important to not only Wirral, but also to Liverpool and the wider Merseyside area. Wallasey also hosted some of the early gigs for the legendary music band The Beatles, who played regularly at the Grosvenor Ballroom in Liscard. The town also boasts many popular first, including being the port from which the world’s first passenger hovercraft operated from in 1962.
Today, Wallasey still plays a vital role in the daily life of the borough, with Wirral Council’s impressive Wallasey Town Hall located there on the banks of the Mersey, looking out majestically over the vessels that pass-by.
Liscard is a popular shopping hub, with the undercover Cherry Tree Shopping Centre and adjacent parade of shops providing a great range of retail options from both local and national retailers.
For golfers, Wallasey is an incredibly popular destination thanks to its two courses. Wallasey Golf Club and Warren Municipal Golf Club provide golfers with a varied challenge thanks to the strong and unpredictable coastal winds that blow in across the promenade at New Brighton and across the fairways.
Along with Wallasey Beach with its Blue Flag status, the North Wirral Coastal Park gives everyone who enjoys the outdoor lifestyle a lovely coastal setting for a walk, run or bike ride, with panoramic views out to sea. The entire town also has an entertaining events calendar, with everything from motorsport to music events taking place throughout the year.
