Once a popular, traditional seaside
town, New Brighton stands on the Wirral
peninsula and used to be one of Merseyside’s main pleasure
Now much quieter it is now a rather sad reflection of its once glorious past. Gone is the 567ft tower, one of the largest ballrooms in the world, the fairground, circus, 550ft long pier and the magnificent open air baths. The last ferry sailed to New Brighton in 1971.
However it is currently being regenerated!
