Along with other council services, Birkenhead Priory has enhanced safety measures in place to help protect the safety of visitors and staff.
Please note that while the car park is open, from 7th August 2021 you will only be able to enter the Priory via the Priory Street entrance. This is part of our one-way system implemented as part of our Covid control measures. From the car park walk back down Church Street, turn left onto Alabama Way, then the next left onto Priory Street.
You will be able to exit the site directly back into the car park.
