Knowsley, Merseyside

Merseyside is a densely populated coastal county, lots of people, spirit, humour, lots to see - from land and air.

Knowsley is one of the greener areas of Merseyside. There are many interesting resources in Knowsley but the most well-known attraction is probably Knowsley Safari Park. This is home to a wide range of exotic animals, including monkeys, bamboons, and even lions and tigers. We're not sure if it's possible to arrange a hot air balloon flight over the safari park (you can imagine the considerations - in particular, the large coloured shape and the noise from the burner may distress the residents)! Nevertheless, it is possible to take hot air balloon flights over real safari areas in Africa so maybe that's an alternative. Now back to Merseyside ...

Knowsley is east of the city of Liverpool and surrounded by other Merseyside towns including Kirby, Prescot, Huyton, St. Helens, and even Rainford (which is a bit further away).
Knowsley itself is on the eastern edge of the main Merseyside conurbation and is easily reached by road from either the M57 motorway or the A580.
