Vale Park

Reviewed By SamanthaOK - Liverpool

Vale Park is an absolutely beautiful little spot. Places to sit peacefully surrounded by really old trees, gorgeous well tended flower beds and fantastic views over the water to Liverpool. It’s such a tiny place yet it has everything for everyone. A magical fairy garden for children, a secluded rise garden for peaceful moments - especially when in bloom, a cafe, a play area, an adult exercise area plus lots of hidden corners and benches to have picnics or just sit quietly. Situated right on the Promenade on the water so it’s just perfect for a wonderful afternoon. You can visit the Black Pearl Pirate Ship a Little Further down the Prom on the beach from here and it’s about a ten minute walk into the centre of New Brighton which has lots to see and do and stunning views.

Antony Gormley's Another Place

Time your visit to this outdoor attraction during low tide. Crosby Beach to the north of the city hosts 100 iron figures cast from the artists' own bodies then erected over a three-kilometer area. Anthony Gormley's simple yet remarkable installation is especially rewarding at sunset.

Reviewed By Shipahoyahoy - Portsmouth, United Kingdom

We strolled along the beach when the tide was out and took in many of the statues. The weathering of the statues, depending on where they are placed, turns them into individuals with their own characters. Some were "dressed", which gave the statue further dynamics. The walk itself is worth the visit. Lovely sandy beach and a wind farm in the distance. We went on a cold, March day, with snow in the air but the weather did not detract from the installation or our enjoyment. The swimming pool, easily spotted as it looks like a space ship (!), has a small café, where we warmed up with a coffee. Plenty of parking at a very reasonable price.

Birkenhead Park

On Easter Monday 1847, the gates were opened to the very first publicly funded park in the world. Designed by Sir Joseph Paxton - Birkenhead Park was created to be the People's Garden - a place where the lowliest peasant to the British Monarch could stand together to enjoy a piece of the countryside in the middle of the city. In 1850, Fredrick Law Olmstead visited the park and with its inspiration, then went on to design and create what is arguably the most famous public park in the world - Central Park New York. In 2004 Birkenhead Park underwent an £11.8million restoration return it to its former glory. Today, Birkenhead Park is a Grade I listed landscape and carries the prestigious Green Heritage Award. It caters for all visitors with a number of sports such as Football, Cricket, Bowls, Angling and cycling, as well a visitors centre and access to some of the original structures around the park.

Port Sunlight War Memorial

Reviewed By kittyginger - Salisbury, United Kingdom

You see this memorial as soon as you enter the village and we wanted to have a closer look after parking the car. The memorial is huge and very moving, both in its statuary and inscriptions. It makes one realise how important the Lever family felt it was to honour the war dead and in particular those who had worked for the company. We also found the memorial garden to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster very moving.

Tam O'Shanter Urban Farm

Reviewed By JohnTripAdviser

On the short walk to the courtyard where there’s a cafe and animal sheds, you pass a very picturesque thatched roof building.
The farm area is small with a variety of animals and birds. The cafe prices are average, quality good, customer service was ok.
I imagine it’s especially good for small children.

A HISTORY OF Birkenhead Tramways Back when Birkenhead was a pioneering industrial town it was the first place in Europe to adopt a street tramway. Those trams ceased operating in 1937, but in 1995 they were revived and you can now travel on one of a series of historic vehicles and experience tram travel for yourself. Trams dating from as early as 1901 operate to make the short journey from Woodside to the Wirral Transport Museum, where you can view the rest of the fleet - tram cars from Birkenhead, Liverpool, Wallasey and a recently restored car from Lisbon, Portugal. The Museum is a proud winner of the Wirral Unsung Hero of The Year 2012 with their volunteers. The transport collection was created as a celebration of Birkenhead's place in the history of public transport, and set up in collaboration with the volunteers of the Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society, who restore old trams. In addition to trams, the museum houses a collection of local buses in running order and a group of cars and motorbikes from the Baxter Collection. There is also a 27 foot long model railway layout. Merseyside Tramway Preservation Society Limited is a Registered Charity . No. 1092127.

The Wirral Tramway and Transport Museum was apparently the winner of the Wirral Tourism Awards 'Hidden Gem’ for 2017. Now the term Hidden Gem is sometimes banded about inappropriately, but for the Wirral Transport Museum it is well deserved.
We searched it out on foot from the picturesque Hamilton Square and my wife began to doubt my sanity the further we walked along the industrial wasteland that is Cleveland Street until finally the brown tourist road sign pointing down Taylor Street came into view. But even then she still wondered where I was taking her until we finally stood in front of the large open doors of this former Tram shed. Inside is a cornucopia of Historic Trams, busses, motorbikes and some classic cars, well laid out with plenty of information and back stories to the history of the vehicles. And all staffed and kept going by a willing band of volunteers.
Birkenhead was apparently the first place in Europe to adopt a street tramway back when Birkenhead was a pioneering industrial town. Looking at the place today it’s hard to imagine that term every applying but apparently it did and it’s fantastic that a band of enthusiasts put the effort in to keep this history alive and provide people the opportunity to still experience what a tram ride was like back in the day. Our visit was during the school holidays and it was refreshing to see some youngsters amongst the volunteers boiler suited up and getting stuck in maintain these wonderful old vehicles.
The museum is free to enter, but donations are gratefully accepted and is only open in the afternoon from 1.00PM to 5PM at the weekend or Wednesday to Sunday during the school holidays. For a family utilising the Mersey Ferry the best way to get here is by a ride on one of the renovated trams from the ferry port at Woodside to the museum, a quick look round and then the ride back to the port for the next ferry.

Liverpool Central Library

Reviewed By JVPG - Chichester, United Kingdom

This is a magnificent facility for the people of Liverpool. We spent a couple of days here, on a visit to Liverpool, doing family research and I have to say the library and records office where second to none. Everyone was very helpful and the place was buzzing. Obviously it is well used with great facilities. Also make a point of visiting the Reading room which is a sight to behold.
