Located in northern England, Wirral is a metropolitan borough in the Metropolitan County of Merseyside and the historic county of Cheshire. It is located on the Wirral peninsula, which is bordered by the River Mersey, the Irish Sea, and the River Dee. It is the largest city on the peninsula.


The Metropolitan Borough of Wirral is a metropolitan borough in the county of Merseyside in the United Kingdom's North West region.

For most of its history, Wirral was a part of Cheshire; according to the Domesday Book, the northern boundary with the rest of the county was marked by "two arrow falls from Chester's city walls." But since the passage of the Local Government Act 1972, only the southern third of the county has remained in Cheshire, with the remainder being in the Metropolitan Borough of Wirral, which is now part of the contemporary county of Merseyside.
