Liscard was a township in Wallasey ancient parish, in the Wirral Hundred of Cheshire, England, which became a civil parish in 1866.

The civil parish was abolished in 1912 to become part of the County Borough of Wallasey. (Prior to 1912 it had been part of the Wallasey Urban District.) It included the hamlets of Egremont and New Brighton. The population was 211 in 1801, 4,100 in 1851, and 28,661 by 1901. At the 2001 Census the population was recorded at 14,301.

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.
