By boat[edit]

  • 4 Seacombe ferry terminal, Victoria Place, Seacombe. CH44 6QY​​​. The Mersey Ferry terminal is quite a distance from Wallasey Village, the centre of Liscard and New Brighton, so it's useful to bring a bike or get the bus.

Get around[edit]

Frequent and reliable Merseyrail services operate between the town's stations. There is also an extensive bus network. Saveaway tickets are valid on all public transport in Wallasey. These can be purchased at any staffed railway or bus stations in Merseyside. An "all areas" ticket is best, if intending to also travel to Liverpool, Chester, Ellesmere Port, Formby or Southport. The ticket costs about £5 per day, for off-peak use. Alternatively, a slightly cheaper "area B" ticket will cover most of Wirral.

  • 2 Fort Perch Rock, Marine Promenade, New Brighton (4 minutes walk from New Brighton Station). A coastal defence battery built between 1825 and 1829. It was built to protect the Port of Liverpool and as a fortified lighthouse to replace the old Perch Rock Light.
