The small town of Bebington lies on the Wirral Peninsula, just south of Birkenhead. It has excellent rail transport links to both Birkenhead and Liverpool, with easy access to the M53 motorway. Around 13,000 people call Bebington home.
If you're looking for Victorian terraces or townhouses, try the New Ferry and Rock Ferry districts. The rest of Bebington is characterised by 1930s and 1950s housing, with some more modern and recent new building, too. Try lower Bebington if you're in the market for a flat or an apartment. The Bebington Village area might suit, if you want to be close to shops and amenities.
Bebington is also famous for Port Sunlight, a model village built by the Lever Brothers in 1888 to house workers at their soap factory. Port Sunlight is now a suburb of Lower Bebington, with many charming, picturesque, red-brick cottages, surrounded by 130 acres of parkland. Today, Port Sunlight is a conservation area and nearly every building is Grade II listed.
Bebington offers a modest range of local shops, around Church Road and Village Road, as well as plenty of open green space, with no less than 18 public parks and gardens.
