Leisure on Wirral
The Wirral is an ideal place for spending leisure time, whether your interests cover outdoor pursuits, indoor pursuits, or simply relaxing in comfortable surroundings.
The miles of promenade, only a short distance from the Hotel, offer some great coastal walking opportunities, while marine lakes and costal waters provide sailing, angling, power boating, water skiing and wind surfing.
For golfers, there are fourteen golf courses, including the Royal Liverpool, to choose from.
For the less energetic, the Hotel is within easy reach of many fine art galleries, museums, and historic landmarks that include:
The Albert Dock in Liverpool provides an enjoyable day out, being the second-most popular attraction in Great Britain, offering the Maritime Museum, Tate Gallery, the Beatles Story, Animation World and scores of shops, bars, restaurants and cafés.
Or simply take a ride on the world famous Mersey Ferries and cruise the river complete with a running commentary as you pass the historic landmarks.
Based on the route of the Victorian railway line between Hooton and West Kirby, Wirral Country Park offers easy walking and cycling and bridle paths are also available. The park was the first designated Country Park in Britain.
Less than an hour by car and accessible using public transport is Chester - a “must see” for visitors to Wirral. After a day out in this fascinating City, why not stop off at Parkgate? Overlooking the Dee Estuary and the hills of North Wales, this the old Roman port offers an opportunity to take in the views while enjoying the local potted shrimps, followed by some famous Parkgate ice cream. The Parkgate fish & chips come highly recommended!
For those wishing to spend time shopping, there are several centres that include:
The Wirral and surrounding areas have something for everyone and The Grove House Hotel is ideally located for easy access to all.
