Parkgate is a beautiful spot. The views over estuary are fantastic. The ice cream was delicious. Try pear and fig crumble- heaven in the mouth!

The jewel in the crown.. Saved our desserts for Nicholls.. This one is a famous ice-cream parlour in Wirral area.. The quality is top notch.. I'd a chocolate one.. Also the cookies were quite unique, animal shaped which caught my nephew's attention 🙂.. Highly recommended 👍👍

I got a double scoop waffle cone from here and it was so big I had to use the scoop provided! Excellent ice cream. The staff were really nice. Good selection of ice creams. They also do sweets and other nice things. You've got to come here if visiting Parkgate!!

Parkgate is a lovely spot for views over the estuary, add a bit of sunshine and an ice cream from Nicholls and it is just great. Great selection of flavours and chocolate dipped waffle cones, yum.

After starting at Hadlow Station on the Wirral walkway we stopped for a coffee and cake (to cold for ice cream) then headed back, it's a nice place to chill and look across the estuary.....

Best ice cream ever tasted. Beautiful refurbished parlour located right on the promenade in Parkgate, serving not only superb ice creams of many flavours and often "flavour of the day", but also serving lovely afternoon teas. Staff courteous and very helpful. A must visit location when on the sunny Wirral.

Now you know how we love our ice cream so we thought we'd do a trip down memory lane to when the kids were little & there was much excitement for a Sunday trip to Nicholls ice cream parlour. we had Ameretto Liquorice Chocolate The Amereto tasted as if a whole bottle of cheap almond essence had been added to...

We are sorry that you did not like some of our flavours. If you had returned to the shop with them we would have gladly replaced them with other flavours. Most of our flavours are imported from Italy including both "Liquirizia" and "Amaretto"and I can assure you that they are certainly not cheap! We hope you will visit our shop... More

Go for the Turkish Delight ice cream! Wow! And the parlour is set in the original building of the 30's. Also greeted with a smile and fantastic to see a sweet shop with the place! Can't highlight the place enough!
