If you like Geogian Architecture this the place for you lots of fantastic buildings and nearby is The Wilfred Owen Museum is close by. You are probably not going to believe this I have'nt found or reviewed any cafes in Birkenhead.

The most grade 1 listed buildings in one place outside London. Doesn't take long to walk around the square but it is worth the time. Beautiful buildings around a grand square. Town Hall on 1 side looks splendid. Glad traffic has been limited. A great...More

Hamilton Square was completed in 1844 and is now a Conservation Area, containing Grade 1 Listed Buildings. It's the largest Georgian / Victorian Square outside London. My walk around the square and through the gardens was midweek during the afternoon, the best time to visit!...More
