Merseyside is a metropolitan county, created in the 1974 local government reform. It is in the north of England, on the River Mersey, composed of the metropolitan boroughs of Liverpool, Knowsley, Sefton, St. Helen's and Wirral.

In 1986 its county council was abolished, and so its boroughs are unitary authorities, although Merseyside still exists legally, and as a ceremonial county.
