“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a superb gem of an attraction. The buildings are fascinating, the volunteers friendly and helpful and the tower climb is an absolute must, not only for the sobering tribute of names alongside the stairway up but the view from the top of the Liverpool skyline and a sneaky peek into Cammel Laird's!

“A relatively hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Tucked away,but well worth a visit! Steeped in history- Wirral and Liverpool could well not have developed as they have without this historic settlement.

“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a very impressive piece of the areas history.Not many people even local residents are aware of the background and history of how the Wirral first began with the monks establishing a ferry crossing to Liverpool.Anyone visiting for the first time should start here it offers a god introduction to the place.

“Wel Hidden Gem,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

I had a pleasent afternoon with a group of homeless clients I work with who come from all walks of life and social backgrounds in the Birkenhead area who were all unaware of this gem on thier doorstep.I would like to say thanks to the staff on duty this day.Phillip was an ambassador to the site taking time to talk to our group with a wealth of knowledge and storys about not only the site but the history of Birkenhead as well from the first ferrys to the traders who helped finance the Hamilton Squre area to the first parks in Birkenhead.
The views from the tower were well worth the climb with great views to liverpool the local docks at Cammel laird and onto the welsh hills.A great afternoon was spent at this historic gem.
