Reasons for trip

Seeing the Wirral from Liverpool we tend to forget there is another side to it – that being its western coast on the Dee Estuary. This spring I went for a walk there on “Thurstaston Beach”: with some family. It was a glorious sunny day and the views were fantastic. We parked at the Thurstaston parking lot and walked through “Thurstaston Country Park”:, past the visitor centre to the beach down some wooden steps. We had intended to walk to the right towards West Kirby but the tide was in so we had to turn left instead. The dogs enjoyed playing ball in the surf. After a while we turned inland and climbed up more wooden stairs for even more great views on top of the 60 foot cliffs. The hills of North Wales were very clear and we could see the path we would have taken if the tide had been out.

Although there is free parking down a lane from Thurstaston village it’s on grass next to the Wirral Way Cycle Path and might well have been mucky the day we went. We parked in the lot at Wirral Country Park – £2 for the day. Whether you want a long walk or short, there’s 12 miles of coastline to explore. Check the website for tide tables.
