the wirral peninsula
Wirral is a peninsula in North West England. The roughly rectangular peninsula is about 15 miles (24 km) long and 7 miles (11 km) wide and is bounded by the River Dee to the west that forms a boundary with Wales, the River Mersey to the east, and the Irish Sea to the north.
We are so fortunate to live on the Wirral Peninsula, home to some of the most beautiful scenic countryside in England, with its many attractions from delightful rural walks and cycle routes to stunning beaches.
Explore the wonders of the Wirral coastline and lush woodlands on this 3-hour family-friendly #HillbarkHike. The perfect way to spend half a day the Hillbark Hike covers a variety of landscapes where walkers will be able to discover all that the Wirral has to offer.
Starting at the historic Hillbark Hotel & Spa, deep in the lush greenery of Royden Park and winding across Thurstaston Common, walkers can take in panoramic views that stretch out across the Dee Estuary.
Next, this popular Wirral walk continues through enchanting woodland, past streams and waterfalls then onto the Wirral Way, a path that follows the remnants of an old railway track that once circled the peninsula.
Continuing on the route stretches out over the sandstone cliff tops overlooking protected salt marshes and wetlands providing views of the picturesque Thurstaston beach below.
The final leg of the #HillbarkHike winds through the quaint Caldy Village, dotted with pretty red stone dwellings, and back up through Royden Park, to return to Hillbark Hotel & Spa.
