Birkenhead is a town in Merseyside, England. It is on the Wirral Peninsula, along the west bank of the River Mersey, opposite the city of Liverpool. Historically part of Cheshire, Birkenhead is perhaps best known as a centre for ship building, as a seaport and its related industries.
Birkenhead has retained its grid-iron street pattern which is centred on Hamilton Square. Birkenhead Town Hall is on the square along with many other notable grand buildings. Hamilton Square has more Grade I listed buildings than any other city outside London.
The town has a good shopping centre, which was redeveloped in the 1970s and expanded again in the 1990s with the building of the Pyramids Shopping Centre. Places to visit include St James Church, Birkenhead Priory, St Mary's Tower and the Bidston Windmill above the town.
Birkenhead Park was the first publicly funded park in the UK, designed by Joseph Paxton. It was said to have been an important influence on the design for New York's Central Park.
