Slow Ways linking Wallasey and Birkenhead, Hoylake, Woodchurch

England / Merseyside / Wallasey

Wallasey’s three Slow Ways are 75% checked

Drawn: 3/3

Help connect Wallasey

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Wallasey’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

Resuming the route through the park, I passed some grand houses, and then was soon into the less grand streets into the centre of Birkenhead. The exit to the main road, just before the station, is closed at night, I believe, but Borough Road, just to the south has a pavement, if an alternative is needed....

Walk this route

Only blown sand in a couple of sections may impede wheeled users, but they are easily bypassed. Paved roads at either end, close to public transport, and a mostly concrete seawall walk along a sometimes exposed coast. Great to blow the cobwebs away!...

Walk this route

A road walk through Woodchurch; a long railside footpath to Upton; up and over Bidston Hill (again, the terrain isn't the greatest for anything over two wheels); through Bidston and past the station (more stairs). A good walk through a variety of terrains, and always good to get up Bidston Hill....

From the A59 overpass to Birkenhead Park, the route passes through some pretty heavy industrial sites. I never felt unwelcome (like, the route always followed real footpaths and pavements), but it was clearly not a space built for people travelling on foot (fifth picture). I hopped off the route for a bit to explore Birkenhead Park, said to have inspired New York’s Central Park (seventh picture)....

A completely urban pavement route linking the two towns. Passes through residential and industrial areas, but, for the most part, is accessible. Also pass a memorial to mountaineer Alan Rouse (1951-1986), who grew up locally....
