West Kirby has been named as one of the best places to live in Britain, by The Sunday Times.

It was hailed as one of the best places to live in the Northwest region, alongside Knutsford, Altrincham and Kirkby Lonsdale.

The paper described West Kirby as “seaside with a salty smile” and highlighted its cosy cafes, Marine Lake and walks to Hilbre Island among its many charms.
