Merseyside is a metropolitan county that lies in the North West of England and includes Knowsley, St Helens, Sefton, Liverpool and Wirral.

The Mersey Estuary divides the county into an East and West side, with the latter containing the Wirral Peninsula and the rest of the county in the former. Merseyside is bordered by Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Cheshire and the two parts of the county are connected by the Mersey Tunnels, the Mersey Railway and the Mersey Ferry. The economy is largely centred on the services industry and also concentrates on manufacture.
