Wallasey is a coastal town in Merseyside about 7 miles from Liverpool linked by the A59. It has three railway stations: Wallasey Village, Wallasey Grove Road and New Brighton which link Wallasey to nearby Liverpool and Birkenhead. Unlike other towns there is no single town centre as it is comprised of several distinct districts - Egremont, Liscard, New Brighton, Poulton, Seacombe and Wallasey Village - although the main shopping area is centrally located at Liscard.
Wallsey is a very affluent area and has the highest number of millionaires in the North-West except for Wimslow. The marina at New Brighton is busier than the Isle of Wight's and it boasts the highest number of restaurants and bars in northern England. The appealing seaside surroundings and its proximity to Liverpool have attracted many a footballer including the likes of Rafa Benitez and Steve Gerard.
Liscard contains the Cherry Tree precinct with shops galore and the beautiful Central Park which is great for a stroll. Wallasey Village has a promenade leading to a coastal park and two golf courses. New Brighton boasts a marine promenade (the country's longest!) and a beautiful beach with many leisure activities. It is also home to The Floral Pavilion which hosts regular productions and the gorgeous public Vale Park. Poulton was originally a small fishing and farming hamlet which has now developed into an industrial and terraced housing area and Egremont is also now almost entirely housing, although there is a small shopping area on King Street. Seacombe is best known for its Mersey Ferry terminal with regular ferryboat departures to Pier Head in Liverpool and Woodside in Birkenhead. There is a commuter ferry service direct to Liverpool during peak hours!
Again there is a huge amount of property on offer in Wallasey. Liscard contains a lot of semi-detached housing with some terraces, Wallasey Village a lot of semi-detached and detached housing, and New Brighton large villas near the sea as well as some suburban semi-detached homes.
