Croxteth, once Liverpool’s slum in the 1940s, has one of the oldest synagogues in the world. It is by Selburne and Princes, steps from St. Margaret Parish, next to the original Florence Nightingale nursing school. Ringo Starr and George Harrison of the Beatles were born nearby, at Pow / Olive Grove, almost within walking distance. There is also the Reform synagogue in Allerton suburb. (Beaconsfield Street does not have the life once associated with John Lennon/Strawberry Field, except the youth drop-in Methodist Centre.) To reach the synagogue by the outskirts of Liverpool, you’ll need to pass a rather depressed area and Bingo along Wavertree Road; the Royal School for the Blind is beside Liverpool Reform Synagogue/ Wavertree Congregational on Church Street. (Turn right past Wavertree District Library after a left, having first circled around Royal University Hospital). Speed camera enforcement is in effect for drivers. Alternatively, you can visit both synagogues on one ticket. Take bus 75 toward Allerton’s Hope University on Hornby Lane; buses 86 (either A/C) also go by there during the day toward Taggert Road inside Hope University, taking cash &/or contactless (visa). Unlike in North America the white street signs tend to be hung relatively low. Since the bus drivers are approachable, you can ask them for directions from Victoria bus station (below Radio City) to Princes Road. Also, it’s best to contact the synagogues in advance, to ask someone about hours and services. It’s easy to combine the visit with a Beatles tour.

A very interesting visit. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was easy to talk to and willing to answer our many questions. We were in awe seeing the Arc of the Covenant and it was very special to see a sample prayer scroll. Recommended visit for any one interested in the history of the Jewish faith in Liverpool.

Took a 45 minute tour of this wonderful building. The architecture is fascinating, inside is amazing. The tour was informative and concise. I left with a greater understanding of parts of the Jewish faith and memories of a very impressive building.

The Princes Road Synagogue was one of the most beautiful buildings we visited in Liverpool. You have to call to join a tour (the details can be found on their web site), but it’s very informal and you could quite probably arrange it at the last minute. We were part of a group of 6, and were shown around by a super guide who filled us in with so much information and was happy to answer all our questions. This was our first visit to a synagogue, so there was much to learn about traditions and such. The architecture and colours were beautiful – especially the Torah Ark. I have attached pictures, but they really do not do justice to the interior. At the end we were taken to a small museum crammed with interesting items. And again our guide was happy to answer any questions. It’s a little off the beaten track, but only half a mile from the Anglican Cathedral and well worth a visit. Don’t be put off if it looks closed when you arrive, it will open. And it’s worth every penny of the £5 entry fee.

What a beautiful, hidden gem this is!!! I have lived in Liverpool for almost 40 years and visited for the first time last week. Really impressive architecture and glorious paintwork and interior design - definitely worth its Grade I Listed Status! We were made incredibly welcome by the community, and we felt really comfortable while we drank in the hidden beauty. Well worth a visit - be prepared to be stunned!! :-)
