45 things not to miss on the Wirral

Now, the title of this post may cause a bit of a discussion because nobody (especially those of us that live here) can ever decide whether it's THE Wirral or just Wirral, and then is it ON the Wirral or IN Wirral/the Wirral? Anyway, if you're taking a trip to the paradise peninsula, Liverpool City Region's Borough of Culture 2019, here's 45 things to do on the Wirral including activities, food, drink and more...
