< Back To Blog


The stunning paradise peninsula is full of endless fun and activities. Whether you’re thinking of moving to the area or relocating on the Wirral, here is all the places you can explore in one day.

As Bradshaw Farnham & Lea are one of the leading estate agents on the Wirral, having branches across the peninsula, we thought we’d show you around on a summer’s day.


Thurstaton Beach


Starting off strong at Thurstaston beach, a stunning stretch of sand along Wirral's western coast on the Dee estuary and is a beautiful place for a stroll with the dog or a picnic. Along the top of the cliffs that overlook the beach is Thurstaston Common, a long stretch of shingle coastland and sandy beach that offers picnic benches and BBQ areas for you to enjoy your food in the sun overlooking the fabulous view of the estuary – a perfect start to the day if you ask us! If you need a coffee in the morning to kickstart your day, you’re in luck with the lovely café Flissy’s located a stone’s throw away (PS try their divine vegan Hot Chocolate’s, you won’t regret it!).

After you’ve done exploring the beautiful Thurstaston you can follow Column Road down into the beautiful coastal town of West Kirby.


West Kirby


West Kirby is the perfect lunchtime spot to watch the wind surfers while you stroll around the Marine Lake. As a West Kirby estate agent, perhaps you could argue a level of bias when it comes to our love of West Kirby but with its iconic waterfront, stunning homes and incredible views, we can’t be alone in picturing it as the capital of the peninsula. There are a plethora of cafes and restaurants for you to dine in – check out our blog on A guide of West Kirby to discover all it has to offer!

West Kirby appeals to buyers looking to settle down and start a family and to those looking to relish in their golden years due to its sense of prosperity and stability.

The place to visit that we would recommend enjoying on a summer’s day is, Championship Adventure Golf located on the front in the centre of New Brighton.

Championship Adventure Golf is an outdoor, all-weather, floodlit, family golfing experience. The Famous Golf Holes course is an 18 hole course inspired by the World's greatest golf holes from the iconic Turnberry lighthouse to Augusta's Amen Corner.

The second course is 'On The Landmarks' is another 18 hole course, this time inspired by Wirral's landmarks and attractions. And if you make it through the front 9 holes, the island green 17th at TPC Sawgrass awaits on the back 9!
