9 days out for all the family on the Wirral

With half terms, long weekends, bank holidays and Easter rapidly approaching, we’re arming all parents with top boredom busters on the Wirral.

The kids are barely in school over the coming weeks and with Spring weather bringing brighter days, there’s lots of fun to be had on the Wirral, and loads of it is free too. From farmyard activities, pocket money priced cinema tickets, crafts galore and plenty of family fresh air fun to be had, there’s something for everyone and to suit every budget.

Here’s 9 ways to keep the kids entertained on the Wirral….

1 – Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm, Bidston


There’s all kinds of farmyard fun on the agenda at Tam O’Shanter Urban Farm including pottery painting! Free entry and open from 9:30 everyday. More info here. 

2 – Bubbles World of Play, Marine Point New Brighton

While the weather is still unpredictable, head to Bubbles World of Play for hours of energy burning fun on the big slides and squashy shapes. Opening times and more here. 

3 – Ness Botanic Gardens, Neston

See the first signs of Spring 2018 with a welly walk at Ness Botanic Gardens. There’s 64 acres to explore including rock gardens, veg patches and more. All the info here. 

4 – Williamson Art Gallery, Birkenhead

There’s hat making, Chinese new year stories, drop in workshops and strange and interesting artefacts galore at Williamson Art Gallery & Museum. See what’s on here. 

5 – Floral Pavilion Theatre, New Brighton

The family show line up at New Brighton’s Floral Pavilion Theatre is superb! You can see Peppa Pig, Milkshake, David Walliams’ Awful Aunties and more. Full Listings here. 

6 – Spaceport, Seacombe


Fancy checking out the moon, exploring distant galaxies and brushing up on your Jedi training while you’re at it? Spaceport is out of this world, literally. Tickets and booking here. 

7 – Europa Pools, Birkenhead

Swimming Liverpool

Grab your goggles and head to Europa Pools for dedicated family swim times for all the splashing fun you can muster. (Tires the kids out too!) Session times here.
