Prices from £5.5 pp
View Liverpool in all its glory from 400ft up above the city
As ever Stag and Hen Liverpool always look to use our local knowledge and connections to provide our stags and hens with the best possible experiences during their time in the city. We are therefore thrilled to have linked up with St Johns Beacon (also known locally as the Radio City Tower) to offer a 360° view of our beautiful city. By adding this activity to your weekend plans we will provide you with tickets to head up the tower and enjoy the view at a time of your choosing over the weekend between 10.30am and 5pm. The photo opportunities are endless and will provide a stunning and unique memory from the weekend.
First opened in 1969 as a revolving restaurant but later closed and left unoccupied the city brought this monument back to life in 2000 when it reopened following a £5 million refurbishment and since that point it has housed a number of radio stations and their studios aswell as an observation gallery with floor to ceiling windows. It is this observation gallery your ticket admits you to and on arrival you will each get a panoramic glossy souvenir guide booklet to help you pick out all the landmarks. However don't worry if you are struggling a member of the friendly team will be on hand to point them out to you.
Now don't worry you don't have to be superfit to get up to the top as two superfast lifts will see you rise up to the top in 30 seconds although for those that do want to take the stairs that is an option should you wish to! There is no time limit on the duration of your stay aswell which means whilst most visitors stay for around 30 minutes if you want to take the 500+ stairs you can still take your time!

Interested and want to add it to your party plans for the weekend? Simply add it to your basket or enquire now and we can arrange this for you however we have one very strong proviso and that is unfortunately we can't guarantee the weather! So in booking please be aware that the view is weather dependent and can stretch from the annoyingly short to the fantastically long 50 miles with Blackpool Tower making the odd appearance on Liverpool's gloriously sunny days!
NB please be aware that the centre is a public attraction and therefore your experience isn't exclusive at the observation gallery, offensive fancy dress will not be permitted and unacceptable behaviour will involve you being asked to leave the tower by staff
