The Wirral peninsular is a stunning part of the country that is able to offer a variety of walks: woodland walks to beaches to sandstone hills to country paths, you name it and Wirral’s probably got it! Nothing feels better than going for a nice sunny walk in the countryside then having a well deserved pub lunch accompanied by a cold refreshing drink!
The Wirral Way
The ‘Wirral Way’ is a 12 mile stretch of disused railway line that has been covered over to create the perfect traffic-free pathway/cycleway, which runs from West Kirby all the way to Hooton in Chester. You can hop on and off the Wirral Way at various points and make your walk/cycle ride as long or as short as you like.
It doesn’t have to be a day’s hiking but it can just be an hour down to the Wirral Country Park or a stroll along the Heswall Dales. However if you do fancy something that little bit more challenging then why not take a look at one of the below walks that have been created by ‘Visit Wirral’ to help you get to know the area.
