An easy, circular walk along New Brighton's seafront and the Mersey shore, returning via the town.

It includes views of the Irish Sea and River Mersey, lighthouse and Napoleonic fort (fort run as a museum and worth going into; displays on Merseyside in WW2, aviation and maritime history and Thetis submarine disaster of 1939, including a telegram from Hitler; check opening times), statue marking founding of Guide Dogs for the Blind, information boards en route, a park, pubs and eateries.

There is space for children to play football and other games and a children's play area, a pond with swans to feed, a beach for sandcastles (when tide is out) near fort, benches for rest or picnics along front. All the walk is on tarmac or paved surfaces and mainly flat, so good for wheelchairs.
