We welcome school visits to Birkenhead Priory

Visits to Birkenhead Priory are free of charge for schools during the hours that we are open to the public. Summer opening hours are Wednesday to Friday, 1.00pm – 5.00pm and Saturday and Sunday 10.00am – 5.00pm. Winter opening hours are Wednesday to Friday, 12.00pm – 4.00pm and Saturday and Sunday 10.00am – 4.00pm.

We are not able to accommodate visits on Mondays and Tuesdays, when we are closed to the public.

A space for leaving bags and eating packed lunches can be arranged for £25 per hour. Please state if you will require this at the time of booking.

School visits to Birkenhead Priory are self-led. A member of Wirral Museums staff will welcome you and give you a set of clipboards to use during your visit along with any other resources that you have requested, then leave you to explore, unless you have booked a tour of the site – for details, see below.

When you book your visit, we will send you details of the schools’ resources that we have available at that time.

We can print resources for your pupils to use during their visit, at £2.50 per set of 30 double-sided, colour, A4 sheets. If you prefer, you can print them yourself in school and bring them with you. Once you have booked your visit, PDFs of the resources will be emailed to you.

We provide the loan of 30 clipboards free of charge and can also provide a class set of HB pencils, coloured pencils, rubbers and sharpeners for 30 children and 100 sheets of plain A4 paper for use during your visit for £10. Please let me know if you would like to make use of the resource pack.

If a member of the Priory team is available, they can provide ½ hour tours of the site for up to 15 children, for £5 per tour. Please let us know, when you book, if this is something that you are interested in.

Alternatively, your session can be lead by oneof our team for £99 per hour. Contact us to arrange available sessions and booking arrangements.
