Once a small fishing village, the seaside town of Hoylake is nestled in the northwestern corner of Merseyside's Wirral Peninsula, where the River Dee meets the Irish Sea. Today the town is largely residential, but it does boast the historic Royal Liverpool Golf Club - the second oldest links course in England - and a selection of independent and boutique shops, which can be found on town's main high street. North Parade, its wide beachfront promenade, is just 10 minutes' walk from the station, up Station Road and The King's Gap. The station's Art Deco style, Grade II listed building was first opened in 1866, before being restored and partially rebuilt in 1938. It runs services every 15 minutes to West Kirby and Liverpool, which leave from Platforms 1 and 2 respectively. Hoylake's free parking and park-and-ride service mean the station is incredibly busy with commuters from the surrounding areas travelling to and from Liverpool.
