  • Nice view of wirral and mersey from tower. Interesting history. Good for an hour or so.
  • 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.
  • Fantastic place to visit, staff are very helpful and they have just won a tourist award, well done the team
  • 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
  • Its amazing. Been coming here since i was a kid. Love the place.
