The event itself was brilliant and told us the history of the building. I am going back soon to explore it properly. Please go,you... More

The vicars name was Mr Stanley Walker and the Choir Master was Mr Robinson... More

Peaceful, beautiful remains of the Priory. Great views across the Mersey and into the shipyard. Those on here complaining about the views into the shipyard need to perhaps remember that Merseyside is famous for its docks and appreciate the monks were the first to cross the Mersey via boat so is actually pretty relevant that you get such a good...

The Wirral is very proud of this attraction. I used to live down the road from it and didn't aporecuate it until I had left. Definitely worth a visit. Full of history and really interesting.

Birkenhead Priory is a gem - yet even many local people either don't visit or don't even know it is there! An easy walk from both rail and bus stations, even closer to Woodside ferry terminal, the site is right next door to Cammel Laird shipyard and commands spectacular views of the Liverpool skyline. So why is it not more... More

What a fascinating place. Steeped in history with stunning views over the Mersey. Friendly, informative staff. As others have said 'a hidden gem.'

With its commanding location providing us rivalled views of the Liverpool skyline another mersey estuary it a must for anyone interested in history. The church tower which dominates the site has been beautifully restored and presented as a permanent monument to... More

A nice historical visit at the heart of Birkenhead. Make sure you ask the staff on site for access to the HMS Conway museum whilst you are there

What a pleasant start to February 2015 to see The Birkenhead Priory begin to look so good now that all the hard work in the precinct is nearing completion. If you haven't visited for a while now is the time to investigate the fabulous site and take a look at the developing offer!

popped in here to have a look having never been by before, and you would never suspect this bit of history would survive in an industrial area, very old and sadly not a lot left but what there is is worth snooping at. we went up the tower and got a great view of liverpool and you can watch the...
