is a densely populated coastal county, lots
of people, spirit, humour, lots to see -

Kirby is a very popular destination for
summer day-trippers from Liverpool
and surrounding areas days out at the seaside
during the summer months. It is on the north-east
tip of the Wirral peninsular, just a few
miles south of its close neighbour Hoylake.
The major attraction for both Hoylake and
West Kirby is the long sweeping beach that
extends from Thurtaston (south of West Kirby)
across the north coast of the Wirral to
(just across the River Mersey from Bootle).
This stretch of coast along the north side
of the Wirral is known as "Mockbeggar Wharf".
Visitor facilities in this area include
caravan facilities, camping sites, many
golf courses, shops and cafes. This area
is served by the Merseyrail train network,
with regular (often at 15 minute intervals)
trains from the stations in Liverpool city
Residents of West Kirby may need to drive
away from this exposed coastal area to enjoy
a hot air balloon flight with a safe solid
landing. That should not be a problem as
the beautiful Cheshire and North-Wales countryside
to buy a flight voucher online.
