Tell us what you love about Wirral!

28 September 2011 by Lisa

Christopher Howse from The Telegraph recently enjoyed a visit to Wirral, guided by an updated edition of Nikolaus Pevsner’s architectural guide to Cheshire. He gave the picturesque Port Sunlight village and the Lady Lever Art Gallery a glowing review. You can read the full article here.  

Here’s our own Marketing Officer Ann Flenley to tell us why she loves Wirral and why you should too!


Lady Lever Art Gallery

Lady Lever Art Gallery

I love Wirral. It’s a relatively undiscovered gem that lies between Liverpool, Chester and North Wales with sandy beaches, endless countryside and golf courses. It really is great place for day trips and family fun in the north west. 

In addition to our own Lady Lever Art Gallery there is plenty to discover, such as Port Sunlight Museum in the same village as the gallery. I also enjoy the odd visit to Church Farm, which is an organic family run farm offering tantalising treats and endless activities to entertain the children.  

Other great attractions worth a mention are; The Floral Pavilion Theatre in New Brighton, The Williamson Art Gallery, the historic Birkenhead Park (famed for being a template for New York’s Central Park!), Ness Gardens, Birkenhead Priory, the Voirrey Embroidery Centre and Spaceport: a family attraction which takes you on an inspirational journey through space.

You can find out more about all the things to see and do in Wirral on the Visit Wirral website.
