Spring 2011 saw the opening of St Johns Beacon to the general public, opening daily including both weekends and bank holidays excluding Christmas, Boxing and New Year’s Day. Standing proudly some 400 feet above the heart of the City Centre, the beacon offers stunning panoramic views of Merseyside, Wirral, North Wales (including Snowdonia occasionally) and as far away as the Lake District and Blackpool on clearer days. Not bad for an observation deck that was originally designed to be a chimney.
The Gallery is situated on the original level of the beacon which once housed the famous Tower Restaurant back in the 1970’s. Locals affectionately refer to our iconic landmark as the Radio City Tower, and you can see for yourself the studios of Radio City, Radio City 2 and Radio City 3.
The beacon is open to visitors from 10:00am - 5:00pm with last entry to the beacon being 30 minutes before close. There is no need to book in advance though tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking here.
Prices are £5.50 for adults, £4.50 for those fortunate enough to be student or retired and £3.50 for children with under 5’s free of charge. A family ticket for 2 Adults and up to 3 Children is £15.00
A free panoramic souvenir booklet is included in the price, and there is no time limit on your visit.
