Explore the stunning Sefton coast

Just 20 minutes by train from Liverpool city centre brings you to the leafy suburb of Crosby on the Sefton coast. It's home to Anthony Gormley's iconic work, Another Place, featuring 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along the foreshore. Further north, National Trust Formby contains lush pinewoods - and is one of the only places in the country you can spot the elusive red squirrel. Planning a trip to Liverpool Hope University?
