Best Hotels in Wirral

Wirral Introduction

Tucked between the River Mersey and River Dee and within shooting distance of both Liverpool and North Wales, Wirral boasts impressive outdoor appeal. For some, that comes courtesy of the wildlife and water sports served up along the borough's 25 miles of coastline, while for others it's more about gorgeous green spaces like Thurstaston Country Park. It's a great spot for history buffs too, with Port Sunlight Village and the Birkenhead Priory just some of Wirral's cultural must-sees.

Hotels in Wirral

Wirral hotels come in a variety of styles, so you're bound to find the ideal spot to stay, not to mention a few tempting Wirral hotel deals. Chain hotels are fairly prevalent and travellers heading to these tried-and-tested spots enjoy comfortable rooms and, often, a free breakfast. There are plenty of independent picks too, with everything from casual rooms above a pub to sleek doubles in a bona fide castle on offer. Hotels and B&Bs are dotted across the peninsula, leaving travellers with a choice of in-town options and shoreline retreats, the latter lining the peninsula's north, east and west coasts.

Where to stay

New Brighton has been a favourite seaside haunt since the turn of the century. This popular destination serves up all the fun of the fair at Adventure Land, as well as attractions like Fort Perch Rock and Marine Point. Kids can play pirates on the Black Pearl, a driftwood boat near Magazine Promenade, while grown-ups can explore the quirky shops along Victoria Parade. On Wirral's west coast, West Kirby offers quieter surroundings, though warm weather does tend to bring with it a larger number of visitors keen to relax on the beach and perhaps enjoy a jaunt to Hilbre Island.

Things to see

Port Sunlight Village is often the first port of call for visitors. This historic spot was once the home of Lord Lever's factory workers. There you'll find spacious boulevards lined with Arts and Crafts cottages of all descriptions, sitting alongside major attractions like the Port Sunlight Museum and the Lady Lever Art Gallery, as well as over 100 acres of manicured gardens and lush parklands. Guided walking tours are available throughout the year, though it can be just as much fun to pick up a self-guided tour map from the museum and explore at your own pace. The culture keeps on coming at the Birkenhead Priory, Merseyside's oldest building, standing proudly near the banks of the River Mersey. For a more recent helping of history, you need only head to the Wirral Tramway & Transport Museum. In New Brighton, culture of a different flavour is served up at the Floral Pavilion Theatre.

How to get to Wirral

The M53 snakes through the heart of Wirral, making a road trip a quick and convenient way to reach Wirral hotels. You'll find the journey time to the peninsula around 25 minutes from Chester and just 10 minutes from Liverpool, via the Kingsway or Queensway Tunnel. From Liverpool, you can also arrive in Wirral on a direct train, or hop onboard one of the city's iconic ferries. If you're travelling from further afield, you might fly into Liverpool John Lennon Airport, a major transport hub that sits just 12 miles from Wirral and offers both domestic and international arrivals.
