Living on The Wirral

The Wirral is a peninsula in the North West of England, bordered by the River Mersey, Irish Sea and River Dee. You are never far from water and a beach!

The Wirral is made up of a number of villages and towns, with Victorian and Edwardian architecture side by side with modern developments, the picturesque villages of Port Sunlight, with over 900 Grade 2 listed homes and Thornton Hough, both built by Lord Leverhulme, sit happily next to suburbia.

Popular areas for families include West Kirby, Hoylake, Heswall, Bebington, Bromborough, Greasby and West Kirby, which all offer a variety of housing and budgets. Last year semi-detached properties sold for on average £178,103, terraced properties sold for an average price of £120,252, while detached properties were £324,480.

Sport and leisure is well served with numerous golf courses, including the world renowned Royal Liverpool, private and public gyms and leisure centres horse riding and a wide range of bars, restaurants and entertainment.

Commuting is easy, with access to the motorway system via the M53 which runs the length of the peninsula, the area is well served for trains and bus services across the Wirral and onwards to Liverpool and Chester. Liverpool and Manchester airports are both within an hour’s drive.

It is easy to see why the Wirral is often described as one of the best places to live in England.
