Reasons to visit

Situated on the Wirral bank of the River Mersey, this park provides breath-taking views across the estuary. It also supports an abundance of wildlife and contains some of the finest mature trees to be found on the Wirral.

Twice daily, the tide floods in from the Irish Sea covering the sandbanks, mudflats and salt marsh. The cliffs at Eastham Country Park provide superb sites for viewing the flocks of waders and ducks on the estuary.
