“Just lovely ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

Have been visiting parkgate for over 10 years since I was a child
Visits on a sunny Sunday afternoon for fish and chips followed by ice cream....bliss,
Got lots of happy family memories of these afternoons at parkgate
Parking is a pain and could be improved but it is worth it!!

“Promenading Treat.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This promenade is popular on any day of the year, with amazing views across the Dee estuary to Wales and Liverpool Bay. This once-busy seaport is now silted up and only sees the tide come in when there is an exceptionally high tide. The marsh is home to much bird life, including herons.
Many facilities include several pubs serving meals, the Chinese fish and chip shop, and 2 ice cream shops. The Wirral Way country park is nearby. The seafront has a toilet block half way along, but on my last 2 visits these have been locked, which is most annoying.
Admiral Lord Nelson used to visit Parkgate.

“The Little Tea Room Parkgate Seafront”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

A little jewel! Wonderful home made cakes and excellent coffee. I had the Guiness Chocolate cake and Americano. Only a few tables inside but fantastic views over the marsh to North Wales. Very friendly and family run. Recommended

“Birding when the High Tides come in the Winter!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

I have had many great times around the Dee marshes watching Short Eared Owls, Hen Harrier and other species and would recommend this time of year but even when the weather is good to have a stroll from Burton Point back to Parkgate and have an ice cream come along to nature extravaganza.

“Lovely place, not just ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Lots of good walks to be had around Parkgate, along the front and through the country park. Wide range of eating establishments, from the excellent Mr Chows to the average Quay, and many more in between. Lots for twitchers to observe, we often go for a good long walk then reward ourselves with an ice cream from Nichols. Nothing else will do!
