Oxton is renowned for its Italianate stucco architecture. Many of the houses were built in the early 19th century by wealthy Liverpool merchants seeking peaceful retreats from the bustle of city life.  A number are Grade II listed. Oxton was originally part of the Earl of Shrewsbury’s estate, and its rich history is reflected in its streets, which are named after illustrious nobles – Alton (Road), Beresford (Road), Ingestre (Road), Shrewsbury (Road) and Talbot (Road). At the top of Rosemount Road lived Brigadier Sir Philip Toosey CBE, the senior officer in a Japanese Prisoner of War camp in Thailand in World War II who was fictionalised in the book and film, “The Bridge over the River Kwai”.

As well as Oxton providing everything you need as a family, there is also the rest of The Wirral Peninsula to be explored.  Your surrounded by beaches and coastal walks, easy access to the seaside towns of New Brighton and West Kirby with the biggest man-made Marine lake in the UK, with glorious views of the Welsh hills and Dee Estuary.
