The Community Website of New Ferry, Wirral, UK




New Ferry is a well-established community on the western shore of the River Mersey, opposite the world famous city of Liverpool, England.

It is a place with a long history, and for most who live here, it is a pleasant suburb of Wirral that lies to the south of Birkenhead.

Although part of the inner suburb of East Wirral, New Ferry is blessed with a fairly quiet and peaceful waterfront location overlooking the River Mersey, with magnificent views towards Liverpool City Centre.

Although with very little sand, the beach below the cliffs is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to its mudflats which are a feeding ground for various birdlife which attracts many birdwatchers.

Situated next to the historic Port Sunlight Village, Wirral’s largest tourist attraction, New Ferry has a district shopping centre serving a diverse community who live in a variety of housing styles from former Victorian mansions, to traditional terraces and modern semi-detached and detached homes which, despite the current national downturn, remain highly sought after by first time buyers wanting to get onto the housing ladder in a fairly attractive and stable riverside community.


New Ferry is a place that is slowly changing and evolving, with a pleasant park, an award winning farmer's market, and a haven for butterflies.  We also have some of the most affordable and varied housing on Wirral, making this an ideal place to choose to live.
