Day Trips - Coach Hire Wirral
Experience a day out with a difference by using Coach Hire Wirral to travel to Birkenhead. This is a vibrant town on the River Mersey opposite Liverpool, is home to the famous Mersey Ferries, Tranmere Rovers Football Club, the first Public Park in Europe and the magnificent Hamilton Square.
The Birkenhead heritage trail leads around the waterfront with lovely views of the Liver Buildings across the water to Liverpool. Kids can learn about transport history while enjoying rides on the trams or visiting Egerton Bridge and the Shore Road Pump House. There are also historic warships to be toured. For splendid views climb St Mary's Tower next to Birkenhead's 850-year-old Priory.
Birkenhead owes its roots to an ancient priory built on a headland jutting out into the Mersey, bounded by Wallasey and Tranmere Pools. The Birkenhead dock area and Hamilton Quarter have been rejuvenated with many tourist innovations. Late Georgian and early Victorian architecture can be discovered in Hamilton Square. The relics of a 12th-century Benedictine monastery are real gems and worth exploring.
With the biggest under cover market in the country and two magnificent shopping centres, Birkenhead offers all the diversity of big city shopping with that hometown feel. There is a huge selection of restaurants from 'eateries' to international cuisine. Birkenhead Park is a hugely popular place with joggers and cyclists and houses two cricket clubs, tennis courts, a bowling green and football pitches. The lakes are also popular for fishing.
Families will soon discover that there are plenty of attractions for children that can be reached with ease using Coach Hire Wirral. From Museums to funfairs the Merseyside region caters for many tastes. Just across the Mersey River is Liverpool and you can visit Albert Dock, home to the Tate Liverpool and Merseyside Maritime Museum, as well as dozens of fashionable shops, restaurants and pubs.
