Located not far from Liverpool, Crosby beach offers a free family day out in Merseyside. This industrial and dockland area allows visitors to see the ships coming in for Liverpool whilst also enabling visitors to connect with nature and enjoy a peaceful day out. The spot boasts fantastic views at sunset and incredible views to the Welsh mountains and countryside.
Whilst here, don’t forget to visit the permanent art attraction installed titled ‘Another place’ created by talented sculptor Anthony Gormley. You will see 100 cast iron figures looking out to sea, spread across three kilometres of the foreshore. We would of course advise you to check the times of the tides as the figures could be submerged on your visit. The size of these figures at 6ft won’t fail to amaze.
There is a childrens play area and because it can be a little breezy, Crosby beach is often a great location for flying a kite!
If you feel the need to get involved in some water sports, a visit to Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre is in order to enable these activities to be done safely. The beach has a red flag rating, typically indicating danger and for visitors to not enter the water. The sea is not suitable for swimming in due to dangerous currents. Quicksand warnings are in place in parts. Therefore, we would advise that you observe the iron figures from the promenade and partake in the watersports with a trained instructor.
