An Interesting Sunday Trip

Considering the historic interest of this place, its a must do. Great views from the church tower. Must have had a perfect view for Three Queens.

Really interesting piece of birkenheads history in the Priory if you go when the guide is there he is very knowledgeable about the church and its history. 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

We had a great time here and it was cold and damp! It is great to see animals up close. Take a picnic or buy some food in the cafe, the choice is yours!

A great deal of work has recently been carried out on the Priory so it is certainly worth a visit with a climb to the top of St. Mary's Tower and the Chapter House to see which was built in around 1155 and is used as a Chapel for worship.

The experiences of spirituality, and history, and the views from St.Mary's Tower. Opening hours should be extended, though.

I have a vague memory of visiting this from school when I lived in Birkenhead but suspect it was the bare bones of the priory. The last 10-15 years have been kind to it, with the addition of a visitors' centre, activities room and a museum to be opened soon. It is not a day's activity but would pass an... More
