About us

Wirral Council is one of six authorities in the Liverpool city region fortunate enough to be experiencing rapid economic development. We have a devolution deal in place with Government, a newly elected regional Mayor, and an economic agenda which is going places.

Wirral itself is a hidden gem. Offering excellent commuter links to Liverpool (less than 2 minutes away via our underground rail links), it’s a beautiful place to live and bring up a family. Our 25 miles of coastline offer leisurely walks, watersports and areas of natural beauty, with fascinating wildlife to explore, such as the seals at Hilbre and the migratory birds along our fabulous country parks.

Modern, executive homes and cutting edge industries sit side-by-side with picturesque villages and rural living to create a unique, stunning place to live, visit and work.

There are plenty of cultural attractions too, from the world-famous Mersey Ferries – overlooking the UNESCO World Heritage site at the Liverpool waterfront - to the wonderful Floral Pavilion theatre. With our great schools, fascinating history, and 14 golf courses to choose from - Wirral has something for everyone.
