End of season openings

Our season of open days for 2018 is drawing to a close.

During the Wirral Heritage Open Days in September, Bidston Lighthouse and Bidston Observatory will be open to the public on these dates:

  • Thursday, 6th September, 1pm – 4pm,
  • Sunday 9th September, 1pm – 4pm,
  • Saturday 15th September 12 noon – 3pm.

This is the first time that the Observatory has been open to the public since the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory quit Bidston Hill in 2004!

Nearby, Bidston Windmill will open on Saturday 15th September from 10am – 12 noon. This is your last chance to see inside the Windmill this year. As the weather gets colder, bats will resume their winter residence.

After the Heritage Open Days, there will be two more chances to visit the Lighthouse, on:

  • Sunday 23rd September, 1pm – 5pm,
  • Sunday 14th October, 1pm – 5pm.

We don’t usually open on Sundays, so this is an experiment for us. We’ll run guided tours at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm on both days. For more information, see our events page.
