Discover what Wirral has to offer

Whether you’re a history buff or a sport fanatic, a cultural enthusiast or a lover of the great outdoors, there’s plenty of things to do in Wirral.

Spend a fun-filled day exploring the quiet, sandy beaches of the Wirral peninsula or walk to off-shore islands inhabited with rare marine wildlife. Our coastal pathways make Wirral the perfect location for walkers, cyclists and water sports enthusiasts.

For cultural lovers there are numerous museums and galleries including the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight, Williamson Art Gallery & Museum and Birkenhead Priory, the oldest building in Merseyside.

Sporting fans are well catered for including a trip to Prenton Park, the home of Tranmere Rovers Football Club. And of course, Wirral is famous for its golf courses, namely Royal Liverpool Golf Club, host of the Open Championships on multiple occasions.

If you fancy uncovering the why’s and what’s of the world around you then pay a visit to Eureka! Science + Discovery, an attraction packed full of creative and hands-on learning experiences for the perfect family day out.

There are plenty of retail locations to shop until you drop too such as Brimstage Hall Courtyard, Birkenhead Market and coastal towns Hoylake and West Kirby, each offering an array of independent shops.

Those wanting a truly unique experience can embark on the Left Bank Soundtrack, an animated audio adventure that takes you through the back alleys and boulevards of Birkenhead, using a specially commissioned soundtrack from local talent.

Wirral is also the ideal base for exploring nearby destinations including Liverpool and Chester. In fact, why not hop aboard Mersey Ferries to cross the River Mersey and see both the Wirral and Liverpool skyline from the water?
