To help celebrate the spectacle of The Three Cunard Queens visit to Merseyside over the Spring bank holiday, Birkenhead Priory will welcome visitors on all 3 days from 10am – 5pm offering a spectacular aerial view. The Queen Mary 2, Queen Elizabeth and Queen Victoria will meet in the River Mersey for the first time in an event that will make maritime history and will commemorate the first transatlantic sailing from Liverpool – 175 years on.

Over the course of Saturday 23rd, Sunday 24th and Monday the 25th of May 2015, there will be a unique opportunity for 120 lucky people to climb the 101 steps of St Mary’s Tower and take in the spectacle from the best aerial viewing point in Wirral. This historic high observation point will provide fantastic photographic opportunities and offer visitors a panoramic view of the Liverpool Waterfront and one of the best opportunities of sighting the ships over their 3 day visit.
