West Kirby, Merseyside

Merseyside is a densely populated coastal county, lots of people, spirit, humour, lots to see - from land and air.In the case of West Kirby, we should really say by "land, sea, and air" as this is an area for boating and other coastal pursuits.

West 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 New Brighton (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 centre.

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 is close-by.
