Welcome to Visit New Brighton.com
New Brighton is located on the north eastern tip of the Wirral Peninsula on the bay of Liverpool where the River Mersey meets the Irish Sea. New Brighton was born in 1826 and by the turn of the century was a bustling seaside resort with hotels, bathing pools, a pier, the promenade, a tower, a ballroom, as well as many other attractions and amenities. New Brighton is fondly remembered by people of all generations who visited the area either as a child or with their own children, many coming from other parts of the United Kingdom and further afield.
The area now boasts a unique mix of old and new. Its 19th century Grade II* listed former sea defence, Fort Perch Rock, and Perch Rock Lighthouse, together with a wide variety of other heritage and historical points of interest, is complemented by an £80million leisure and retail facility, Marine Point. Large grassed seafront areas, known locally as ‘the dips’, provide the perfect venue for large scale events. A short stroll inland sees a growing base of independent bars, cafes and restaurants on Victoria Road and Victoria Parade and the opportunity to purchase vintage, reclaimed and pre-loved finds on Seabank Road. One of New Brighton’s wonderful beaches is home to the internationally known community-built iconic driftwood boat, The Black Pearl, tended to with love and care by a band of merry 'pirates'. The area which also boasts a popular theatre, marine lake, beautiful parks, awarding winning businesses and unique fairy village is surrounded by miles of spectacular coastline with stunning views of Liverpool’s waterfront.
A million visitors a year come to New Brighton and we hope you do too. New Brighton #makenewmemories
