Lifestyle in Merseyside
With fascinating architecture, towering cathedrals and dozens of curious museums to explore, there's plenty of history to discover around Merseyside. You can take a stroll around the warehouses and water at Liverpool's Royal Albert Dock, see the oldest iron pier in the country at Southport or visit the remains of the 800-year-old Birkenhead Priory, the oldest standing building in England.
You'll find seafaring heritage at the Merseyside Maritime Museum, a collection of extinct species at the World Museum, and more than 6,000 objects of local historical significance at the Museum of Liverpool.
From high-profile orchestras and touring musicals to bustling shopping centres and unique boutiques, it's no wonder that so many people are choosing our retirement properties in Merseyside. You can catch classical performances at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, watch opera and musicals at the Liverpool Empire Theatre, or see one of the largest collections of artwork outside of London at the Walker Art Gallery.
When you feel like treating yourself, you'll find more than 160 stores at the massive Liverpool ONE shopping complex, a thriving local community at the historic Great Homer Street Market, and a huge range of curious craft items and locally produced goods at the independent retailers dotted around the county.
Packed with tranquil parks and protected nature reserves, Merseyside's an area that's full of natural beauty. You can explore more than 200 acres of landscaped fields, lakes and woodland at Liverpool's Sefton Park, admire nationally renowned floral displays at the Southport Botanic Garden, or wander along 3 miles of award-winning sandy beach at Crosby.
You'll also find rare red squirrels at the nature reserve in Formby, birds of prey at the RSPB Marshside reserve and more than 700 animals from all over the world at Knowsley Safari Park in Prescot.
Whether you're an experienced hiker or just dedicated to sports, there are lots of ways to keep up an active retirement around Merseyside. You can ride horses at Croxteth Country Park, learn to sail or canoe at the Liverpool Watersports Centre, or keep up your game at more than 40 golf courses spread around the region. If you’re feeling brave, you can even take a dip in the sea at Crosby Beach.
If you'd like to retire to a place where you don't have to choose between the city and the beach, just see if one of our high-quality retirement properties in Merseyside is a good fit.
