Welcome to Liverpool 2-Hour Tour

Special Offer

Welcome to Liverpool 2-Hour Tour

If you’re a local or just visiting Liverpool, this tour will reveal many of the hidden depths of Liverpool’s history. From King John granting Liverpool a charter in 1207, the town largely remained the same until the late 17th Century when Liverpool began to develop as a port. The construction of the “Old Dock” was a major turning point that saw a massive increase in trade and the wealth of the city that continued until just after the Second World War. It is the period from the construction of the “Old Dock” up to the mid 20th Century that this tour covers and gives an insight into the key events, the people and buildings connected to them and the legacy these have left for Liverpool. We will strip away the veil of modernity and reveal the past - hidden in plain sight, and show you Liverpool’s aspirations for the future.

Georgian Liverpool Walking Tour

Special Offer

Georgian Liverpool Walking Tour

Join this tour to learn about the history of Liverpool during the late Georgian and early Victorian periods and discover how some of the more famous residents changed and influenced world developments – many of which we take for granted today. Liverpool was at its trading peak during the late Georgian and early Victorian periods and its affluent merchants were seeking grand houses outside of the town center. It was during this period that Hope Street and Rodney Street were laid out and the building of fine houses began. Take a journey back in time and learn about the famous residents and rich history of this era. After the tour, you might want to visit the Victoria Museum housed in the original University of Liverpool building and displays a whole host of fascinating (and sometimes gruesome) medical artifacts from Victorian times. Please note that this is no longer part of our itinerary but our tour guide will be happy to show you how to get there.
