Welcome to Leasowe Lighthouse

Welcome to Leasowe Lighthouse. Built in 1763 and fully functioning until 1908, it is one of the Leading Lights that guided shipping safely into Liverpool. As well as a place of work it was also a family home.

Our shop sells refreshments, confectionary and souvenirs at prices to suit all – from postcards to our exclusive Lighthouse model.


Three generations from one family enjoying their abseiling!

Leasowe Lighthouse is visited regularly by Schools – our guides are all eager to tell the children and their teachers about the purpose of the Lighthouse (not as obvious as many think!), the families that lived here and its more recent history.

We host abseil events, visits from groups interested in the paranormal, we act as a base for local running groups, and the Lighthouse has been visited by both TV and Film companies for use as a location.



We are part of the Lighthouse Passport Scheme, The Lighthouse Passport allows the holder to collect ink stamps or stickers from lighthouses and related sites, with space for notes under each stamp area so that you can also use it to keep a record of your visits. We can stamp your Passport if you already participating, or you can buy a Passport from us to start your collection.
