West Kirby Marine Lake

Reviewed By John S - Bedford, United Kingdom

A biting wind and scudding clouds made our walk along the marine lake wall 'refreshing' to put it mildly! The views over to Wales were great and the evening light made for some great photos. It takes about 20 minutes to do the full circuit - it does feel if you are walking on water...

I had a fabulous 2 days at this studio which is located in a beautiful setting, learning the basics of laser cutting. Kris was very calm and explained everything clearly and step by step. The day was based around what I wanted to take away from this process and geared around that, Kris was very informative and I found the course inspirational and made me think outside of the box. Thanks Kris. -

Royden Park

Reviewed By 56Myangel62 - Wirral, United Kingdom

Royden Park in Frankby is a place you can step into and instantly feel at peace and relaxed surrounded by nature away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's where I've visited throughout my childhood growing up, and as a mother taking my own son creating fond memories. There's a miniature railway with steam trains run by model train enthusiasts that gives rides most Sundays. They don't charge for the rides (adults can accompany children) they just ask for a donation as this goes towards the up keep of the track/ trains/fuel. There are open spaces for the kids to run around safely, have a picnic or often there are activities in the summer holidays. I found it an ideal place to show my son nature, wild life and the changing of seasons in an easily accessible area that is on the level for little legs! It's also a great place for dogs and walkers. A safe haven of peace and tranquility for all to enjoy.

Lucky enough to have Father-in Law as a member! This is a spectacular venue with unparalleled views across the Championship Course and the Dee Estuary. It really would be difficult to find a better backdrop for Sunday lunch. A fairly recent change of chef has resulted in a more modern approach to presentation and cuisine- no detriment at all!
Sean and John preside over front of house with professionalism and aplomb and all the staff are pleasant and properly trained!
Thank you Team!!

The Black Pearl is an interactive artwork to be enjoyed by all age groups it has been created and maintained by a small group of pasionate pirates. Allow your imagination to soar or just absorb the work and detail in the carefully selected driftwood and ships ropes. There are many sculptures and carvings to be found on and around the ship . If your lucky you may even find treasure in her treasure chest. The golden sands surrounding The Pearl are cleaned every day and perfect for the children to play on. The area of Cosy Cove is loved and treasured by the local community who always keep a close eye on her. pirates At Art

There is never a dull moment ether as the Pearl braves all kinds of weather and tides. The photo opportunities are absolutely endless as it stands majestically in sight of the world famous Liverpool skyline. An absolute must see xx

Brimstage Maze

Reviewed By Dubya666

This is a great place, albeit somewhat overpriced, at £9, for children (adults pay the same?!)
The mazes are well maintained and interactive so the kids will enjoy finding clues and walking with purpose.
The grounds contain a plethora of activities - the pillow bouncy Castles are great fun, even for adults. There are also zip wires, an indoor play area, water bomb catapults, a train, mini golf and many other attractions. You could easily spend the full day here and that in itself renders my earlier gripe about the pricing somewhat redundant!
Adults and kids will enjoy - better than ice cream farms or crowded funfairs!

Wirral Country Park

Reviewed By TravellerFromNWales - North Wales, UK

We took a short circular tour for a few hours in the Country Park starting from Thurstaston. There was plenty of parking available, but there were prominent police notices warning of car crime, so put your belongings in the boot when you get there.
Crossing over the track bed of the long disused railway line, now the Wirral way, there are a few gateways into the park. We were fortunate that the visitor centre was open when we went. A typical public sector 1970s building, it offered a much welcomed toilet facilities after a long drive. There is also a small shop with books etc and a bird hide in the centre.
The park itself is largely flat unless you are making your way down to the beach. There is also a wildlife pond near the visitor centre and several areas where you can take and use your own disposable barbecues in brick built stands. Views from the park across the Dee Estuary towards North Wales are simply stunning.
Beautiful open spaces that all the family can enjoy and well worth exploring in good weather.
