Events on Bidston Hill

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.

Mayday sun-upping

The Mersey Morris and the Mockbeggar Morris danced the sun up on Bidston Hill on Monday 1st May, as they do every year. All went well, the sun rose at 5:37am BST. Put Mayday in your diary for 2024!

Solar observing afternoon

The Liverpool Astronomical Society conducted an open day at Bidston Observatory between 1pm and 4pm on Saturday 6th May 2023 with solar telescopes to safely observe sunspots and solar flares and our Sun.

Kudos to the Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre for making this possible.

Bidston Lighthouse will also re-open in May. Please see the Bidston Lighthouse website before planning your visit.
