Welcome to Leasowe Lighthouse

Built in 1763 and fully functioning until 1908, Leasowe Lighthouse is one of the Leading Lights that guided ships 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.

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.

COVID-19 Closure


In the light of recent developments and the acceleration of the spread of the Covid-19 Virus in the UK, The Trustees of The Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse CIO have decided to suspend all public open days and other events and activities for at least two months and, subject to review, possibly longer.

Lighthouse Passport

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.

Public loos

At the moment, we are unable to offer any toilet facilities at Leasowe Lighthouse. The nearest Public Conveniences are at the end of the access road on the corner of Pasture Road and Leasowe Road. If you are visiting the area in a group, it would be wise to let us know so we can make sure they are available.
