A one-time fishing village that was transformed into a Victorian seaside town, Hoylake lies on the Wirral peninsula where the rolling River Dee merges with the ocean.

It’s a place for relaxing, sailing, walking… and golf.

Here is the famous Royal Liverpool Golf Club, which has hosted, among other events, The Open Championship and the Walker Cup.

It is also a top spot for the sport of sand yachting. John Lennon's first wife, Cynthia, lived here and Hoylake is where the couple’s son Julian grew up.
