Ever wanted to visit one of the most iconic cities in the world then why not visit Liverpool in a motorhome. You will pick up your hire vehicle from our depot at our Bootle branch.
After our dedicated staff have shown you round your hire motorhome and your happy with how everything works then it’s off for a short twenty minute drive from Bootle town centre to the seafront town of Crosby.
Crosby Beach is home to Antony Gormley’s art installation Another Place, this was erected in 1997, there are a 100 steel sculptures placed in the sea bed standing out above the tide. The sea views were described in the 19th Century by a First Lord of the Admiralty as second only to the Bay of Naples. Crosby’s environs include several miles of beach, a marina, a number of parks and a large area of woodland known as Ince Woods.
Your second place of interest to visit is Southport. Drive 15 miles in your motorhome north of Liverpool. Historically a part of Lancashire now it is classed as Merseyside, the town in its present form was founded in 1792 when William Sutton, an innkeeper from Churchtown, built a bathing house at what now is the south end of Lord Street, the town’s main thoroughfare. At that time, the area, known as South Hawes, was sparsely populated and dominated by sand dunes.
At the turn of the 19th century, the area became popular with tourists due to the easy access from the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal, and the town quickly grew. The rapid growth of Southport largely coincided with the Industrial Revolution and the Victorian era. Town attractions include Southport Pier with its Southport Pier Tramway, the second longest seaside pleasure pier in the British Isles and Lord Street, an elegant tree-lined shopping street, once home of Napoleon III of France. The boating lake here is fantastic if it’s a slow boat ride you want or you can take a trip on a speed boat with fully qualified staff.
After a visit to Southport head back south towards Formby Beach park up here and take a walk through the woods were squirrels live and take a walk along the sand dunes.
After a night in your motorhome in Formby it’s time to head through Liverpool to the tunnels and head over to the Wirral, whilst here visit New Brighton
New Brighton is a seaside resort forming part of the town of Wallasey, England. It is located at the north eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula, once within the historic county boundaries of Cheshire, and has sandy beaches which line the Irish Sea. Take a stroll and blow some cobwebs off on the promenade, New Brighton is home to the UK’s longest promenade at slightly over 2 miles.
Park your motorhome up on the front and enjoy the views across the Mersey estuary and watch the array of ships that come in from Ireland and further away and small boats take day tripper’s across to the city centre.
The Black Pearl Pirate Ship is a community art installation situated on the beach near Tower Grounds . A replica of a three masted pirate man-of-war, it is almost entirely constructed from salvaged materials and driftwood found on the beach. Unusually for an artwork it is the focus for many other activities, mainly as a children’s play structure, but also as a mock up vessel for RNLI exercises, wedding ceremonies and as a popular subject for photography.
Last stop on your motorhome tour is obviously Liverpool City Centre. Park up near the famous Liver Building right on the docks. Liverpool is a popular tourist attraction with museums a plenty for adults and children. You have got the Albert Docks where the Beatles museum is a popular attraction for the world famous 60’s band. If you are a fan then the Cavern Club on Matthew Street is where they first played together as a band and every night is packed to the rafters with fans young and old.
