Things to do in Wirral

With great transport and road links for getting around North-West England and into Wales, plus superb sandy beaches, 14 golf courses, stunning coastal walks, ancient woodlands and top-class restaurants, it’s no wonder Wirral is known as the paradise peninsula.

Merseybeat Stays is a five-minute stroll to the charming Oxton village, known for its dog-friendly restaurants and bars, as well as a few minutes’ walk from the centre of Birkenhead. This town and ferry port has a beguiling list of attractions and is currently going through an ambitious transformation, making it the largest regeneration project in the UK today.

Across the Mersey from Liverpool, when you stay in Wirral you’ll enjoy world-famous views of the iconic Liverpool skyline and the Welsh mountains. Its proximity to the sea and mountains means it has its own weather system with low rainfall and a temperate climate all year.

With so many things to do when you visit Wirral, you might need to hire transport. We have a special relationship with a top, local minibus company to take you on work trips, airport runs, golf trips or days out.
