  • Merseyside's oldest building, a medieval monastery, under the shadow of a towering warship is a striking contrast. Much more left of the Priory than I imagined. Free to enter and free tour from very knowledgeable guide with his own historical connections to the place.
  • Free to visit, if you have never been or haven't been for a long time it's well worth the visit, on site parking. Friendly staff & free guided tour by volunter guide.
  • My Wife and I visited this beautiful historic site on Sunday 12th November after attending the Memorial Service. What an amazing little gem this is. We were lucky enough to meet one of the Museum Officials whose name was Frank Campbell. He proved to be very knowledgeable and was only too willing to help us understand the history of the site. Thank you Frank for an amazing visit. We will definitely call again, possibly next summer. Recommended to all as a MUST SEE place of historical interest.
  • Definately worth a visit..Great views from the viewing platform,and of the Mersey and Liverpool.. seaped in history..
  • If you've got an hour to fill it's a nice place to visit, full of local history and great views from the top of the spire.
