Meols station (pronounced "Mells") was the station closest to our B&B and base for exploring Merseyside, so we passed through it a fair bit during the week. The station is on a road bridge above the line, and like many of the Wirral Line stations has a 1930s Art Deco style roof:

Inside is the tickets window:

Next to the ticket office is the footbridge which spans the tracks:

The station is full of flowers:

Perhaps it helps that the station has been adopted, like many on Merseyrail's network:

Incredible Edible Hoylake have this planter on the platform too:
