Windmill open days 2024

Bidston Windmill will open to the public on the second Saturday of each month from May to September, from 10am until 12 noon each day, subject to essential repairs being completed in time.

The Friday Group will also open the windmill most Fridays from May, repairs and weather permitting.

If you’d like to help with opening the windmill this year, please contact us!

There is a minimum height restriction for access to the higher floors (1.06m). Children under 11 years old must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Admission is free, but donations to the Friends of Bidston Hill are welcome.  The Windmill is closed during the winter, when hibernating bats are in residence.
