Climb St Mary’s Tower – Birkenhead Priory

Birkenhead Priory, CH41 5JH

Climb St Mary's Tower - Birkenhead Priory

As the oldest standing building on Merseyside, the Priory offers a unique insight into the town of Birkenhead and its historical and spiritual importance in the development of Wirral. Birkenhead Priory has a history that includes royalty, the birth of a city, and a religious life.  Sitting on the banks of the Mersey, the Priory is the gateway to understanding how the Wirral grew over almost 1,000 years.  

Climb St Mary's 25m tower to see some of the best views of Liverpool's famous waterfront from the top.
