Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, these 5 Wirral spots provide a ready-made backdrop, waiting for you to snap the perfect picture.
We all enjoy uploading our snaps to social media, especially when documenting our impressive adventures. But if a holiday is off the cards this year and city trips are a no-go, don’t fear. Who would believe that the Wirral is full of picturesque views and Instagram worthy locations? Well, we did! To save your legs, we’ve hunted down 5 examples of picture-perfect spots in the Wirral.
1. Thurstaston Hill
Thurstaston Hill is a popular spot for walkers, nature lovers and of course photography enthusiasts. Covered in rusty sandstone and luscious greenery, when you’ve reached the top of the hill you’re rewarded with an incredible panoramic view. As well as the view, there are a small number of monuments to spot like Thor’s Stone, as well as beautifully unique wildflowers which add a little pop of colour to the background of your shot.
2. Thurstaston Beach
Just a stone’s throw away from Thurstaston Hill, you can find the wide planes of Thurstaston Beach. An amalgamation of grassy dunes, pebbles and sandy banks, the beach provides an amazing setting for a seaside walk as well as a great place to watch the sunset. In the summer months, crowds gather to watch the tide creep in and the burnt orange sun disappear below the horizon. It’s a great little evening activity as well as a prime opportunity to snap an almost tropical sunset.
The beach without the beach; Parkgate provides unusual but amazing scenes which allow a top notch picture. Pose with a famous ice-cream, balancing on the wobbly sandstone wall using the hills of Wales as your backdrop. There’s even chance to get a coffee sipping candid with the estuary in the background. Basically, Parkgate is where great Instagrams are born.
4. Red Rocks
Called so due to the red sandstone dunes which encompass this natural attraction, Red Rocks is a great example of pictorial excellence. Found in Hoylake, Wirral, it’s a popular spot for families, walkers and nature lovers due to its unique little beach and views that can be had from the peak of its rocky cliffs. When the weather’s just right, the sun’s light bounces off the rusty rocks creating a lovely orange hue. With the right shot, your viewers may think you’re in the Californian hills, never mind the middle of the Wirral.
5. Ness Botanical Gardens
Wirral’s answer to a secret garden, Ness Gardens provides an unbelievable backdrop for your photography. A space dedicated to the upkeep of its gardens, it provides a display of horticultural perfection. This has caused it to be a very popular place for local visitors and even wedding parties. Holding events such as educational courses in gardening and pottery classes, Ness Gardens has become the setting for scenes of heartwarming community and natural imagery.
