The village has three pubs, one school and a garden centre. Childer Thornton is exactly half way in distance between Birkenhead and Chester and one of the pubs is named 'The Halfway House', which was a stage coach stop between Chester and New Ferry in the 1770s. Childer Thornton's other pubs are 'The Burleydam' and 'The White Lion'.
Childer Thornton is in the Anglican parish of Hooton, with an attractive parish church made of local sandstone, situated just outside the village itself. It was built between 1858 and 1862, at a cost of £5,000.
