Bidston Lighthouse

Open every Saturday afternoon until the end of August / Guided tours on the hour from 12pm-3pm / Bidston Lighthouse, Wilding Way, Bidston Hill, Wirral, CH43 7RA


Bidston Lighthouse will open for guided tours on Saturday afternoons, July to August, during the exhibition. Learn about the changing role of Bidston Observatory over the past 150 years, from astronomy, meteorology, chronometer calibration and the one-o'clock gun, through tide prediction, seismology and oceanography, to its imminent re-invention as an artistic research centre. 


Artist Yu-Chen Wang will also link FACT to the Observatory and Lighthouse through a series of flags she has designed, installed at all three locations.
