Festival of Walks 2024

Walk 30 - Wirral Wander

  • Thursday 2 May at 10.30
  •  Thurstaston Country Park
  • 7-8 miles


  • Dogs permitted (on a lead)

Registration Desired

Meeting at Thurstaston Country Park, Station Road, Wirral. Parking costs around £5.00. The walk will start from the paved area where the noticeboard and ticket machine face you as you drive into the main car parking area. Toilets available at the Visitors Centre/Whistle Stop Cafe on the opposite side of the Wirral Way to the car park.

A 7-8 mile varied day walk including the Wirral Way, the Dungeon and Thurstaston Hill with stunning views across the estuary towards North Wales (weather permitting). The walk may include a beach walk (depending on the tides) which involves a steep descent of steps and a short, steep ascent from the beach. A few stiles and a couple of steep, rocky ascents, one up an incised valley called The Dungeon, and the other up to the top of Thurstaston Hill. We descend through Thurstaston Common with a lunch stop at Royden Country Park, where there are toilets, picnic tables and a lovely walled garden (dogs are not allowed in here). The cafe may be open, but it is recommended you bring drinks and a packed lunch. We return through the residential area of Caldy, and then along the Wirral Way. Please wear suitable clothing and sturdy footwear.

Well behaved dogs on a short lead are welcome.
