Valued in your community
At Penkett Road, we are fortunate to be located on the picturesque New Brighton coast, just a short stroll from the beach and promenade.
The local area has many cafes, pubs, restaurants, and shops, as well as Wallasey Central Library, the Light Cinema, a miniature golf course, Marine Point retail and leisure park, Riverside Bowl and Laser Quest, a model boating lake, and the Floral Pavilion Theatre. For people who like to stay active, Guinea Gap Leisure Centre provides year-round access to a gym and swimming pool.
Liverpool is easily accessible from the property. Here, people can enjoy numerous museums and art galleries, Liverpool ONE Shopping Centre, the Liverpool Empire, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Imagine That Science and Discovery Centre. And we’re spoilt for choice for beautiful walks - the docks, Toxteth Park, Wavertree Botanic Gardens and Sefton Park are just a small selection.
Liverpool is also home to The Reader Organisation - a charity specialising in shared reading to improve mental wellbeing. Located in Calderstones Park, people can visit the Reader Cafe or the Storybarn to join shared reading sessions, where stories are read aloud and then discussed.
