Immerse yourself in the history of this magical location. Dating back to more than 6 centuries ago, the atmosphere is incredible. The building is magnificent and ideally located in the heart of Brimstage village. When it was first created, can you believe that this hall was enclosed by a moat and a high embankment? Back then, the first registered occupants were a wonderful married couple called Sir Hugh Hulse and Marjorie Hulse. It is them who decided to build the chapel in which visitors can still admire the beauty of today. The vaulted ceiling is spectacular. The carved corbel is also open to the public and it apparently shows a Cheshire Cat. And yes! This cat is rumoured to have been inspired by the cat in ‘Alice in Wonderland’. These days, in this very location, visitors can enjoy the joys of a shopping centre. Unlike any other centres, shopping here is a very relaxing experience.
As if being part of the Leverhulme Estate wasn’t enough prestige, Brimstage Hall & Courtyard brings its own prestige to the table. The original hall itself, is just under a thousand years old and although information on the hall itself and its inhabitants is somewhat sketchy, all that you need to know is that one of Britain’s most entrepreneurial men owned and lived in this building. Today, it’s now becoming quite famous for its courtyard of great little businesses and with the addition of the Mouse at Brimstage, which is has become a very popular place to eat during the day. So whether your out for a walk, visiting the Wirral for the weekend, or even a local resident of the area, I can’t recommend a visit here enough. We have given this attraction our hidden gem award for heritage, so why don’t you go and see for yourself why.
