The Wirral Peninsula has a rich diversity of landscapes for walkers, we pick seven of our favourites,
Royden Park, Frankby
A rich portion of nature, some wide open spaces and a slice of military history in this walk near Frankby.
Fancy a little sea air? Take a bracing walk along the Wirral coast and down through Heswall Dales.
You need to brave the elements in this walk as it runs close to the Dee Estuary, but you are rewarded with an abundance of wildlife and a good choice of places to eat post-walk.
Cheshire residents may mistake Willaston-in-Wirral for the place just outside Nantwich, but this village just to the east of Neston is the starting point for this walk.
West Kirby and Hilbre Island
Timing is crucial on this water themed walk from West Kirby to Hilbre Island as you are at the mercy of the Gods (or at least the tide timings).
This walk starts out at Royden Park Country Park, and takes in Thurstaton Common and Thor’s Stone.
