  • First visit for many years. Loads to see. Not just about the priory itself. The volunteer on duty really knew his stuff & always on hand to answer questions. Couldn’t be more helpful. You have to ask ...  more »

  • Very good place, if they do not recommend it, I never would have found it, this just before entering the Queensway tunnel to Liverpool, is an old construction that began there by the 14th century to grow in the field of the monks in the area fundandose asi Birkenhead Priory in the order of Benedictine monks, eventually was losing importance began to build houses in their interior, and today is a place to go in a couple of hours and above all to climb the tower to have a vis TAS maravillossas of the river and see the silhouette of the city of Liverpool in all its glory...

  • What a little gem! Didn't know this place existed. Fantastic local history preserved wonderfully staff very knowledgeable
  • Wonderful view across thr Mersey in this great car park with a view.
  • Nice view of wirral and mersey from tower. Interesting history. Good for an hour or so.
  • I've been here for various events and they're always friendly and welcoming. If you get the chance then it's well worth going up the tower for the view but take a look at the names of the Thetis crew that are displayed as you go up. It's such a shame that it can be a bit tricky to get to
  • Have a look around the ruins and small museum where the monks who ran the first Mersey ferry lived, worked and prayed. If you visit on a 5th Sunday of the month join in the morning worship at the historic chapel.
