Bidston was an ancient parish in the Wirral hundred of Cheshire, England. It was also a village in the civil parish of Bidston-cum-Ford which was established in 1866. In 1933 the civil parish was split between the boroughs of Birkenhead and Wallasey. Bidston is now considered an inland suburb of Birkenhead.
In the nationwide municipal reorganization of 1974 the entire Wirral Peninsula, with the exception of the municipal borough of Ellesmere Port and urban district of Neston at the southern end, became the Metropolitan Borough of the Wirral in the new administrative county of Merseyside.
