Islands to explore in Merseyside

Merseyside is a metropolitan and ceremonial county in North West England. Visit the home of British glass at the World of Glass museum in St Helens, a fascinating town also known for its rugby league heritage. See wild animals up close and personal at Knowsley Safari Park, take in Anthony Gormley’s unique art installation on Crosby Beach and visit Formby Point to see one of England’s last strongholds for red squirrels – go see before they disappear for good.

Hilbre IslandHilbre Island, Wirral, UK

One of the beautiful locations for walking in Wirral, or spotting rare and endangered wildlife.  The islands are an archipelago and classed as one of just 43 unbridged tidal islands in the UK that can be reached on foot from the mainland. It is also important as a stopping-off point for the twice-yearly migration of birds along the west coast of Britain. On the island is the Hilbre Island Bird Observatory.
