Spring 2011 saw the opening of St Johns Beacon to the general public, opening daily including both weekends and bank holidays excluding Christmas, Boxing and New Years Day. Standing proudly some 400 feet above the heart of the city centre, the beacon offers stunning panoramic views of Merseyside, Wirral, North Wales (including Snowdonia occasionally) and as far away as the Lake District and Blackpool on clearer days. Not bad for an observation deck that was originally designed to be a chimney.
The Gallery is situated on the original level of the beacon which once housed the famous Tower Restaurant back in the 1970s. Locals affectionately refer to our iconic landmark as the Radio City Tower, and you can see for yourself the studios of Radio City, Radio City 2 and Radio City 3. Access to one of our live studios is also available upon request, dependent on availability.
