You will enjoy miles of sandy beaches and glorious views across the Liverpool Bay and Irish Sea. The area is rich in history - the walk passes the Fort Perch Rock near New Brighton, built as a coastal defence during the Napoleonic period and now a Grade II listed building. This walk starts at Thurstaston Country Park, passes through West Kirby and Hoylake (where the Dee estuary meets the Irish Sea), continues through the North Wirral Country Park and New Brighton, along the Egremont Promenade before ending in Seacombe. The North Wirral Country Park is home to many forms of wildlife, and is one of the country’s premier sites for wading bird populations. Hoylake, West Kirby and Seacombe offer a wide range of excellent pubs, restaurants and hotels.
