"The Wirral" England Things to Do Tip by KennetRose

England Things to Do: 569 reviews and 903 photos

  Old cottages, Willaston
by KennetRose
 
 

To the north-west of Chester lies the Wirral peninsula. Framed by the Irish Sea and the estuaries of the Dee and Mersey rivers, this is a quiet and little visited area with dramatic coastal vistas, picturesque villages of smoky-pink stone and black & white half-timbering and great tracts of heathland.

An unusual highlight is the Victorian model village of Port Sunlight, with its important Lady Lever Art Gallery. Now why isn't Port Sunlight a World Heritage Site, like Saltaire and New Lanark, I wonder!

See my Heswall page for further details.

Directions: North west of Chester, along the A540 and A41 roads.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
