[size="3"][font="arial"]I thoroughly recommend Visiting Thurstaston Visitors Centre and The Wirral Country Park.

It is a beautiful stretch of countryside within The Wirral Peninsula overlooking The River Dee Estuary. The area consists of cliff-top fields which steeply overhang Thurstaston Beach below, and offer stunning views over the mud flats to Wales on the horizon. The whole park is a 'Site of Specific Scientific Interest' within the UK, and offers excellent bird watching opportunities given the unique habitat within the exposed mud flats.

There are lots of attractions to keep visitors of all ages entertained throughout the day, such as an outdoor barbeque site, a visitors centre with nature displays and a kiosk selling refeshments, a large central field for playing ball games, having picnics or relaxing, and numerous walks. The Wirral Way walking path (a converted rail way track which was first built in 1866) runs through the park and is 13 miles in length.

There is also a neighbouring Caravan Site[/font][/size]
