Travelling around Belle Vale

Travelling around Belle Vale

Situated in Merseyside in North West England, Belle Vale is a small district not far from the River Mersey and just a stone’s throw away from one of the UK’s most visited cities – Liverpool. 

Belle Vale is where the Beatles legend, Sir Paul McCartney travelled to from his hometown in Speke to attend Joseph Williams Primary School during the late 1940s and early 50s. Sadly, the school no longer stands, but its memory lives on for the people of Belle Vale.

Belle Vale has excellent road links to surrounding areas. Arriva buses run a selection of routes in out of the town centre, with services to St Helens, Widnes and Wavertree, as well as Liverpool city centre and Liverpool John Lennon Airport.


Drinking over dinner

If you’re after some retail therapy, the contemporary Belle Vale Shopping Centre is the place to be. You’ll find all your favourite high street brands, as well as fast food outlets, a supermarket and a café. There’s also a gym, soft play centre and Lazer Quest.

If you’re craving some fresh air, the cycle and pedestrian path that runs from Aintree to Halewood – forming part of the Trans Pennine Trail – passes through Belle Vale along a disused and converted railway line. Why not have a wander and take in the sights?

Or you could head to Belle Vale Park, where there’s a playground for the kids and Lee Valley Millennium Centre – a community centre serving the Belle Vale area – where you can relax with a drink and a bite to eat. The library located within the community centre holds various events throughout the week.

Then, once the sun goes down, you can hop on a bus and head for the bright lights of Liverpool and dance until the early hours.
