The Wirral has many beautiful places dotted across its peninsula and West Kirby is no exception; but it’s probably the jewel in its crown… no wonder Sunday Times voted it as one of the best places to live in 2022!!! According to their intro, West Kirby is a 'watery wonder on the Wirral peninsula and a Dee-light for everyone from families to silver (wind)surfers'… and here’s why?
There’s the beautiful beach with stunning views across the glistening Dee estuary over to the Welsh hills, a long promenade in which to saunter along (with an ice-cream of course!), a boating lake as well as independent shops, cafés and restaurants in which to while away the hours in.
Bursting with wildlife you can watch flocks of birds gliding in pattern formation (as if to music) and be mesmerised at the oystercatchers, curlews and grebes who forage for what they can find.
And as the tide recedes you can walk to Hilbre Island, where you can spot seals and on the odd occasion, dolphins, whilst water babies can head to the marina and lake and enjoy windsurfing or even sailing lessons at the yacht club.
West Kirby’s history has been influenced by the Victorian era which is clearly visible in the architecture of the properties that lie paces from the seafront. Within an easy commutable distance of Liverpool and Chester this bijou town provides the perfect antidote to the city office. Excellent schools surround the area making it the perfect place for families, whilst an array of apartments and bungalows offer those seeking to downsize, fabulous options.
Enjoying a cosmopolitan vibe, West Kirby really does have it all. To find your piece of peninsular paradise then click HERE or call one of our friendly and helpful team members at our West Kirby branch who will be able to help on 0151 625 9300.
