Birkenhead

Birkenhead boasts a rich maritime history. The Ark Royal was built at Cammell Laird. It boasts a 12th century Benedictine monastery and a large Victorian park, the inspiration for New York's Central Park. Paul O'Grady, Dixie Dean and Glenda Jackson both hail from Birkenhead, and World War I poet Wilfred Owen called it home during his school days.
