We pass here most days on our way to the Tunnel and we didn't know just how amazing the History was. The view from the tower is incredible. (Don't forget you Camera for the best view of Liverpool Skyline.) The exhibits are very interesting and informative. Well worth a visit

Great place to visit, some really old buildings, it was rumoured that there was a tunnel below the Priory that goes under the Mersey, used to transfer armaments form Liverpool to Birkenhead during the wars. But this was a rumour ?

Birkenhead Priory is a lovely place to visit, picturesque and full of history. When you enter the grounds there are wonderful views. You can enter the monastery and view the displays before heading up the spiral staircase to more displays and stain windows. The chapel is small and inviting, a place where you can walk around or just sit quietly.... More

Went with my 14 year old nephew. Especially atmospheric was undercroft. Liked the history sheets which were informative without being too 'wordy. Dinosaur footprint. Display from Conway training ship also a good one. Had been to Priory in past with a larger group (when 'Wirral Vikings' were staging their encampment). Always a nice place to go - and so unusual...

A massive big thanks to the gentleman that works there. Wish I had asked his name so he could get the recognition he deserves. He totally took... More

You can go up the top of the bell tower and see for miles along the mersey and camel lairds and there is lots of history about Camel lairds shipyard and the ill... More
