Birkenhead Priory is the oldest standing building on Merseyside. Its 1000-year history includes stories of royalty, the birth of a city, and religious life. As well as being an oasis of calm in an industrial landscape, it's a perfect spot for family days out, with plenty to explore in the ancient grounds. You could also choose to climb the 101 steps of St Mary's Tower for spectacular views out over the Mersey.
