Affluent Crosby lies five miles to the north of Liverpool city centre, on the Irish Sea coast. The town, made up of several small village communities, is home to around 50,000 people. Crosby has four stations and enjoys excellent rail links to Liverpool and beyond. John Lennon airport is within easy reach and Crosby is convenient for the M57 and M58. Local attractions include Crosby's beach and marina, its promenade, its sports club, three parks, the Carnegie Library and the beautiful green space of Ince Woods. Aintree racecourse is just three miles away. Crosby offers a good choice of pubs and a range of craft shops and boutiques.
Crosby Coastal Park affords magnificent views of North Wales. The 100 eerie iron figures of sculptor Antony Gormley's installation Another Place occupy three kilometres of the shore at nearby Blundellsands.
