Crosby Beach, with a Another Place statue

About

Crosby Beach is now the permanent home to ‘Another Place’, the sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist, Antony Gormley.

The beach has been awarded the Quality Coast Award by Keep Britain Tidy.

The QCA award tells visitors that the standards of beach management are of the highest quality in the UK.

Visitors can walk along Crosby Beach and the Coastal Path and take in views of the sea, the Wirral and North Wales.

Access to this strip of coast is good with four train stations and free car parks at Crosby Marine Lake, Mariners Road and Hall Road.

The 22 mile Sefton Coastal Path starts here and a section of the national cycle path network runs the length of the Park.

Please take note of beach safety flags and signage.

Codes of conduct available.

Lifeguard cover.

Crosby Coastal Park and Crosby Beach is managed by Sefton Coast and Countryside Service.

    This is a great beach but was marred by the amount of rubbish everywhere, the bins were overflowing and there was rubbish scattered all over the sand. I’m sure that a more frequent clear up would... Read full review
