Plan your visit



The construction of St Johns Beacon began in 1965, its main purpose to provide a ventilation shaft for the shopping complex below, its completion coming in December 1969.


Standing 138 meters above sea level, the tower was the tallest building in Liverpool and remained so until the erection of the 40-storey Beetham West Tower (home to the Panoramic Restaurant), which stands tall at 140 metres.



St Johns Beacons is home of Hits Radio Liverpool and Greatest Hits Radio and part of the Bauer Media Audio family. We are proud of our heritage in Liverpool, the North West and North Wales broadcasting to over 500,000 people each week.


We currently broadcast live from the top of the tower with Leanne & Scott on Radio City and Rossie on Greatest Hits Radio.



St Johns Beacon forms a key part of the famous Liverpool skyline. The city is over 815 years old with something for everyone.


Hotels, restaurants, bars, museums, galleries, parks and attractions are ready and waiting for you to enjoy.

That’s a wrap from us this year. Thank you to everyone who either visited the tower, left a (positive) review, recommended us to friends and family and posted wonderful photographs of the tower over the past twelve months. We really do appreciate it. Have a splendid evening, and all the very best for 2024. 

Happy New Year! 🥳 #liverpool #newyear
We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Dean Sullivan at the age of 68. Known to millions as the loveable rogue Jimmy Corkhill, he was also a good friend and colleague to many here at the tower when he presented his City Talk afternoon programme when the station launched back in 2009. A sad day for the city. RIP Dean! #liverpool
