The North West is the third most populous region in England, extending from the Welsh to the Scottish borders. It also has some of the best beaches in the UK!!
The beautiful North West England coast, which includes the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which runs from the historic harbour town of Maryport to the Scottish border and covers most of the Solway Firth, England’s biggest estuary, is sometimes associated with sprawling urban areas, such as Liverpool and Blackpool.
In the 19th century, Liverpool was one of the world’s most active ports.
Despite the fact that shipping is no longer a major industry in Liverpool, many of the docks have been beautifully restored, as have famous Victorian structures such as the Liver Building on the Mersey waterfront.
The Wirral Peninsula, on the other side of the Mersey, is home to the unspoiled countryside, sandy beaches, charming hamlets, and Birkenhead’s industrial port.
The Sefton coast runs for twenty-two miles from Liverpool to Southport, which has been dubbed England’s golfing capital with its 22 golf courses.
Blackpool, which is officially the United Kingdom’s busiest resort, is England’s answer to Las Vegas.
The Pepsi Max roller coaster, Europe’s biggest and fastest ride, draws the miles of amusements to a close.
North of Blackpool is Morecambe, a traditional seaside town that serves as the start of The Cumbria Coastal Way, a long-distance walking route that extends 182 miles to Gretna on the Scottish border.
Workington, a tiny fishing town on the northwest coast of Cumbria where cod, mackerel, whiting, and prawns are still brought ashore on a regular basis, is situated at the mouth of the Derwent River, which rises at Bassenthwaite Lake about fifteen miles from shore.
