Windmill open days. The Windmill opens to the public at 10 am on the first Saturday of every month from April to September. Last entry is at 11:45. 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.
There will be an additional opening of the Windmill in May 2018 for National Mills Weekend, and in September 2018 for Heritage Open Days.
Nearby, Bidston Lighthouse often opens to the public on Saturday afternoons. The last two Lighthouse open days in 2017 will be 14th October and 4th November. More information about Lighthouse opening times.
