Lighthouse without lamproom
Jul 2021 • Couples
Drove here up the coast to view this old 1763 lighthouse. Nice location with free car park. Just walked around it as no admission. Maybe open other days but no signage. Worth a look for lighthouse enthusiasts. Another to tick off!!

Historic landmark

Amazing landmark if you are doing a good walk along the coast. We have walked down and took a few photos, however, there was no information about when and how you can visit.
A great area around to visit with a picnic, and there is a small pond to spot wildlife in nearby

£7 entry for 2A and 2C and £1 for a couple of certificates for the kids. 130 Steps, great views, great guide, loads of local info, ghost story, fossilised eel on a rock outside. Basically everything we needed on a wild March Sunday. Thank you.

The sands and the views are fantastic
Sep 2019
On the Irish Sea coast of the Wirral Leasowe Lighthouse is really just a landmark which draws you to a truly magnificent walk along the sea defence wall, or if the tide is right out, along the sands.
It's up to you to decide wether the extensive wind farms out at sea spoil the views or not, I don't think they do.
You can walk, along a flat and even concrete path, for miles and miles, though there is rather a lot of dog muck to watch out for.
This is at the place to watch the sun go down.
The sands are potentially extremely dangerous , there are areas of sinking sand and the tide rushes in at a tremendous rate and can easily catch the unwary. Television programmes about the RNLI have recently twice featured near fatal events here, one a horse the other an elderly man, stuck in the mud and only saved in the nick of time because there is a hovercraft at the nearby Lifeboat Station. At the main Leasowe car park (free) there is a well used outdoor café and up on the wall a Lifeguard Station (RNLI) which posts advice notices and flies flags in colours designed to grade safety of swimming and boarding.
To the north is the entrance to the Mersey and south the coastal hills of North Wales across the Dee. Inland is bordered, at Leasowe, by two golf courses, Leasowe Castle(now a hotel) and the lighthouse which is a visitor centre but seems not to be open very much.

Open Day at The Lighhouse
Aug 2019 • Family
If you visit Leasowe Lighthouse, check on line to see when they are holding an open day.
It’s a very interesting place to visit and the guides are very informative.

a unique brick built lighthouse which is actually located in Moreton, not Leasowe, which is a post war council estate a few miles away. The reason being it was once called Leasowes light; named after the pastures located around it, from the viking word. Check the internet for opening times; a full guide to its history etc is located inside.

We came upon Leasowe Lighthouse whilst following a walk and we were very impressed. It was a typical British summer day (raining and incredibly windy!) and it stands out well away in the distance. We couldn't go in as we visited on a day when the lighthouse wasn't open to the public (which was a shame) but all in all it's worth a visit. We'd like to come back when the weather is better and the lighthouse is open for a little wander inside!

Interesting Lighthouse
Jul 2018 • Couples
Leasowe Lighthouse was built in 1763 and fully functioning until 1908, it is one of the Leading Lights that guided shipping safely into Liverpool. As well as a place of work it was also a family home. It can be seen for miles and is open to the public on the first and third Sunday of each month from 12:00 until 16:00, with the last tour starting at 15:30.
