How many events and venues can one pack into a naturist weekend at short-flying distance from home?
Not two or three, but five different experiences awaited us when the high-spirited Irish delegation from Dublin and Malta (we also have extremely motivated Maltese members!) landed in Liverpool last Friday!

1) Straight after arrival at Liverpool John Lennon Airport we drove in our rental car to LIVERPOOL SUN & AIR SOCIETY, a ten-acre site in Merseyside established in 1933.

Before retiring to our hotel we still had time to play naked darts and dancing video games to the amusement of the club members.

2) On Saturday morning we headed for the closest beach that offered some naturist possibilities, and indeed we walked southwards on AINSDALE BEACH – a vast flat sandy beach with impressive dunes as a backdrop – the sea was calling us with its irresistible little waves – until we were satisfied it offered good conditions for discreet sunbathing and skinny dipping.

3) We left Ainsdale to attend the WIRRAL NATURIST SWIM in upmarket Chester on Saturday evening. A total of 27 attendees enjoyed with us the sumptuous amenities of a generous leisure centre that included a slide and design pool and a health suite composed of sauna and steam room.
I was surprised to hear from secretary Carol that the hiring cost was lower than what we are usually charged in Ireland. Ron O’Hare, regional BN representative for the North West, joined us for the swim as well and we made arrangements with him for the following day.

4) On Sunday morning we set out to participate in the local GREAT BRITISH SKINNY DIP, which took place on St Anne’s Beach in Blackpool.

Over thirty British naturists gathered around BN banners next to the sand dunes in lively banter. Unfortunately, water quality had dramatically deteriorated due to recent pollution from sewage, hence bathing was not advisable.
After a couple of hours on the beach with Ron, he guided us to our next naturist experience.

5) Only half an hour away from Liverpool and Manchester the visitor can arrive at Hazel Grove, the site that is home to LANCASHIRE SUN CLUB.No description available.

The Club will be celebrating its 90 years this August. 

We could not fail to admire the passion and dedication of Ron and partner Elizabeth while we toured the site. We admired in particular the sheltered lawned areas for relaxation and sunbathing, the constant chatter of birds filled the air.

A barbeque set a fantastic end to our intense weekend. We felt very grateful to Ron and Elizabeth for their generous hospitality.

Fifty hours upon arrival, we were bidding farewell to the Beatles city, which will live on in my memory as the naturist friendliest area in the UK.
