Travelling around New Brighton
Much like its popular Southern namesake, fun and exciting times await at the seaside resort of New Brighton.
Situated on the north-eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, the area is located where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea. A wondrous place filled with things to see and do, you can spend hours exploring everything from the beaches to the pier and listed buildings.
New Brighton is easy to reach via rail, road and even boat. Arriva bus services operate frequently both to and from New Brighton, bringing access to many places, such as Liverpool, Birkenhead and Wallasey.
Filled with the recreational fun of any seaside town, you can spend hours enjoying the sea, sand and, hopefully, sun. Alongside the famous beachfront, you’ll also discover numerous landmarks to enjoy. Take some time to visit the Black Pearl Pirate Ship, which is a replica of a three-masted pirate man-of-war ship.
You’ll also find two Grade II listed buildings, St Peter and Paul’s Roman Catholic Church and the New Brighton Lighthouse, which opened in 1827 and was in use until 1973.
Numerous shops, restaurants and cafes can be found at the Art Deco designed New Palace amusement arcade, while brass bands play throughout the summer months at Vale Park for your amusement.
