Enjoy a wonderful nautical retirement at Mariners’ Park – Liverpool

The Nautilus Mariners’ Park Estate in Wallasey is a unique place to live, where former seafarers can share memories and camaraderie in their retirement years with others who have experienced life at sea.

Founded some 160 years ago, Mariners’ Park Estate now forms part of the care and support services provided by the Nautilus Welfare Fund − a registered charity administered by Nautilus International. The Fund offers a range of specialist services to support retired seafarers and their dependants in need.

That includes a variety of independent living accommodation, a care home and home care services. The specialist accommodation means retired mariners and their dependants can be surrounded by like-minded neighbours, and have access to a full range of support services to enable a long, safe, and happy retirement.

The Mariners’ Park Estate comprises 122 homes − including apartments, bungalows and houses, and a 36-bedroom Care Home.

We are specialists in supporting seafarers in their retirement and provide a range of housing options for rent. Properties are available now, with both one and two bedrooms.

Located on the banks of the River Mersey, Mariners’ Park is set in 16 acres of idyllic parkland with stunning views of the iconic Liverpool skyline.

The park promotes independent living, and if you require care, you can be supported in your own home. There is also a care home onsite which offers a higher level of support.

You will be part of a community that looks after one another, and retired seafarers who served at any rank are eligible to apply to live at the Park. You just have to demonstrate a substantial career at sea. We also consider applications from widowed applicants whose spouse was at sea.

Residents enjoy regular social events and can access a home care service to help with shopping, cleaning and other needs.

All accommodation comes fitted with a community alarm system, and emergency support is available 24 hours a day.

Facilities available to residents include communal social areas, a laundry, a hairdresser’s salon, a gym and a games room.

‘I just feel very privileged to be living here in Mariners’ Park’

‘Peaceful. quiet, secluded, a good atmosphere’

‘Mariners’ Park is tranquil and peaceful. As soon as I enter the park I feel safe and secure’

‘Here on the park you can enjoy the company of other residents and become involved in the various activities on offer, or if you prefer you can stretch out on your sofa and enjoy a good book’
