Travelling around Birkenhead

Birkenhead is on the Wirral Peninsula, along the west bank of the River Mersey, opposite the city of Liverpool and is perhaps best known as a centre for ship building, as a seaport and its related industries. The name Birkenhead is possibly from the Old English bircen meaning birch tree, of which many once grew on the headland which jutted into the river at Woodside.
